In this workshop small groups of participants share personal stories from their own healing journeys. The workshops are facilitated by two digital story facilitators who help participants ‘find’ and tell their stories in a story circle, record their stories in their own voice, and create 2- to 5-minute videos using images and sound. Workshops end with a screening of participants’ completed videos.
Participants may decide to keep their digital stories private, or to share them with family, friends, the community, or through social media and the world-wide-web. Videos that participants are willing to share publicly can be used in healing or community wellness programs.
These workshops are suitable for youth, adults, elders and inter-generational groups; residential school survivors; health and social service workers and clients; teachers and students … anyone with a story to tell from their own healing journey.
This workshop can be delivered on-site to organizations or communities that are seeking different ways of supporting individual and/or community healing.
