The creative energy, support for people at all levels of technical ability, and commitment to the value of the human voice made the Center for Digital Storytelling workshop an unforgettable experience.
- Janey Skinner, Standard Workshop participant
The workshop was one of the best professional development experiences of my life. I was deeply impressed by its combination of deft technical training, inspired group work, and support for creativity. The combination of the story idea, personal engagement, and new media was magical.
