Digital Storytelling Workshops

EducationInteractiveNews

The other day, I wrote a post about the brick and mortar presence of the NFB, which sparked some comments on Facebook about how disappointing it is that the NFB only has theatres and workshops in Montreal and Toronto. Well, now we’re bringing the workshops to you.

As part of the Canada CODE project, some of the good folks here at the NFB are going to be collaborating with the Vancouver Olympic Committee to bring digital storytelling workshops to communities across Canada.

This is super cool and an incredible opportunity for those who wish to participate.

The goal of the program is for participants to contribute to Canada CODE and learn about the NFB collection at the same time. We’ll have bilingual facilitators traveling across Canada to deliver 3 types of workshops:

  • Student/participant workshops – a full day, hands-on program designed for delivery in-class.
  • Educator workshops – a 3 hour hands-on program to provide educators with the tools to deliver a digital storytelling workshop to their students.
  • Conference workshops – a 1 – 2 hour lecture-style program with hands-on activities designed to build awareness and encourage educators, community leaders and librarians to deliver digital storytelling workshops to various people.

If you want to host or organize a workshop in your community, just call Melissa Wheeler at m.wheeler@nfb.ca or at (416) 973.0896.

Tell her I sent you.
