60000 storytellers

Wow, I've just been reading about the Singapore International Storytelling Festival that's going on this week. 60,000 storytellers are expected to attend. I'm struggling to imagine that many people all coming together for a storytelling festival. Fantastic!
Digital storytelling is on the programme this year and Denise Atchley is taking part. I'll never forget Denise's speech at our 2003 Digital Storytelling Conference here at BBC Wales in Cardiff. From the platform, she presented an unfinished digital story made by her late husband Dana in which she filled in the gaps live. It was incredibly moving. The ingternational digital storytelling community of course owes a huge debt to Dana and Denise.

If you're one of the 60,000 in Singapore this week, be sure not to miss Denise's presentation.
