As a round-up of digital storytelling activities in south Wales, it’s hard to beat this event TELLING TRUTHS, CHANGING MINDS in Cardiff, Wales, on Thursday, 29 November 2012.
It’s been organised by the CommsCymru network for communications professionals in Wales and it’s open to all members of that CommsCymru network (joining details below). The event is all about the ‘practice and tactics for making effective comms narratives plus the latest applied research from experts at our national centre for storytelling’.
The programme is impressive:
- Professor Hamish Fyfe of the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling at the University of Glamorgan will be hosting the evening.
- Lisa Heledd-Jones of StoryWorks will share some of her digital storytelling work in the field of health and wellbeing.
- Matt Chilcott of the digital inclusion project Communities 2.0 will talk about that project.
- Bridget Keehan will be ‘Questioning the Purpose of the Arts in Prison’.
- Chris Morgan – Mogs – of GEECS will discuss how storytelling can be used in digital inclusion.
- Dr Pat Ryan will look at the improtance of story times in Welsh museums, archives and libraries.
I’m really looking forward to this event. If you’re not already a member of the CommsCymru network, you can get details of free membership at www.commscymru.info and of how to register for this free event from firstname.lastname@example.org
