Community Digital Storytelling Initiative 2020

In 2020, our group of community digital storytelling practitioners began work on a second Initiative. Here we share new digital approaches with other artists and arts organizations. We created three courses, a digital story and a multimedia book to help others in the arts explore.

Our research, presented in the form of a digital story, was conducted by Chris Bose and Lisa g Nielsen. We looked at building artistic support in rural Indigenous communities with an eye on LEGACY.

Chris Bose: Here is the video for the Trapline project, an idea that started in 2019, but probably goes way back further to discussions online and who knows where? in this video 11 indigenous artists are interviewed about the obstacles and challenges they face day to day in rural life as well as solutions to them. Please share widely!

Sebnem Ozpeta returned to her earlier research into Data Visualization. In her report, presented as a multimedia book, she shows how the field grew through classic examples. Then she introduces current examples, ranging from top-of-the-line Tableau software to sites that help users create infographics.

Community Digital Storytelling Initiative 2019/20

In the beginning, we conducted 13 interviews with digital storytelling workshop facilitators and mentors who are based in British Columbia. This shared knowledge is the foundation for a series of essays. These documents tell us something about how we as artists started working within community, and provide a strategy for digital excellence. Funded in part by the Canada Council for the Arts’ Digital Strategies Program.
