The Centre for Community Learning & Development’s (CCL&D) Digital Storytelling program is an innovative learning initiative that supports CCL&D’s goal of community development and empowering individuals.
The Digital Storytelling program enables the expression and portrayal of people’s life stories, specifically the trials and tribulations often faced by the underserved and those transitioning to a better life. We focus on the process of giving participants the tools to create their own media. This collaborative project engages and involves the community while expanding the knowledge of the different cultures, experiences, and backgrounds of the people it serves.
Participants write a script, narrate, design, and direct a short story that, at around 2-5 minutes long each, serves as a window into their lives and experiences. The aim is to inspire those sharing the same struggles. The stories themselves are short vignettes, which make use of photographs, digital video, voice narrative, poetry, and music to encapsulate personal, sometimes poignant but always positive, messages.
