Digital Storytelling

Digital storytelling is a learning, creating and sharing experience supported by technology, allowing participants to share aspects of their life story through the creation of their own short digital media production. Through digital storytelling young people tell their own stories from their own experiences through reflective and creative techniques. It is an approach that combines a participatory, collaborative methodology with the creative use of technology to generate stories aimed at catalysing action on pressing social issues.

Young people’s digital stories address gaps and silences associated with marginalisation/multiple forms of exclusion that young people face. The approach helps people to articulate deeply-held experiences of exclusion and resilience and allows for young people to ‘take control’ of narrative.

The process supports new forms of solidarity and group identity through the relational experience of telling stories, which can lead to new possibilities for learning, finding points of connection across diverse lives and facilitating collective action.
