Storytelling for Social Change Workshop

  • Vermont Folklife Center 88 Main Street Middlebury, VT, 05753 United States (map)

Storytelling is a powerful tool for the documentation of voices, memories and histories. It can also be a catalyst for activism and social change. In this workshop we will explore the ethics and techniques of oral history, ethnography, and storytelling as activist research methodologies. Attendees will be introduced to these three merging methodologies through a combination of short media pieces and discussions, and will learn the basics of corresponding skills such as interviewing, story circle facilitation, and ethnographic observation. We will also cover the technical aspects of storytelling for social change, providing an introduction to minimal resource audio recording tools.

Cost: $95
