At StoryCenter, our core technology is listening. We approach the creation of safe, supportive, and creative spaces seriously, and with humility. Our Digital Storytelling Facilitators’ Intensive is designed for those interested in acquiring foundational skills for assisting or leading digital storytelling workshops. The Intensive offers personalized skills assessment and focused opportunities to develop capacity in chosen content areas (story development, visual design, facilitation of individual and group processes, and technology teaching). We approach the workshop as a classroom within a classroom. You start with a two-day orientation.

We also help you unpack the process, and to assisting you in developing an individualized follow-up plan.
