We restrict the size of each workshop to 6 participants to ensure that each storyteller has the support they need to explore and craft their digital story to their own satisfaction.
You will need a computer (Mac, PC, Chromebook) with an internet connection and updated web browser.
The facilitator asked me the best questions and that allowed me to find my story. I never expected this workshop to be so intensely emotional and rewarding.
