Community Digital Stories, Insights & Tutorials

Digital Stories Canada is dedicated to the art of short community digital stories with a Canadian connection. Many of these stories were created during workshops sponsored by the grunt gallery in Vancouver, collaborations with Lorna Boschman and Sebnem Ozpeta. The BC-based Community Digital Storytelling Initiative shares research and tutorials on the site.
