What is Digital Storytelling?


Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer and mobile phone based

technology to tell inspired stories.

They contain a mixture of images, text, recorded audio ,video clips and/or music,

they can vary in length from 2-5 min.

The topics that are used range from personal/community visions,events and tales to historic


We guide the individuals to create empowering stories of their

individual and/or community life. These stories are connected directly with images, words and audio

that the individual or communities have collected.

The story can be share electronically and by using mobile phones.

Digital Storytelling can bypass language and literacy barriers, making it an effective, engaging

and empowering community engagement tool.




6 word Story Films

6 word story workshops and movies

We use a simple and engaging technique to capture and harvest community voice using the concept of short story

writing and image capture, the 6 word story films are a NEW form of Graphic recording.

It involves capturing, —in words, images, colour, music and sound effects—people’s ideas and expressions as


they are being expressed in an event. It is a perfect tool to illuminate how we as people connect, contribute,

learn and make meaning together.

6 word story films add life to meetings, community engagement events, conference event evaluations,

websites, e newsletters, presentations, reports and more.

** Follow your passions, and success will follow you ** Nothing in life is stacked against you in your life except your own thinking ** When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth ** Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at ** Every youth owes himself and to the world to make the most possible out of the stuff that is in him ** A man in the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, nothing else ** You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is enough! You must take action ** All achievement is the triumph of persistence **
