Every single human being has a unique personal history based on their experience, thoughts and feelings. To share those stories with others can be a powerful tool, changing the attitudes and inspiring both sides – those who listen to the stories and those who tell them.
The art of storytelling has been an important part of social interactions since the very birth of humanity. However, as nowadays we are being exposed to constant flood of news and data, we tend to forget how important and meaningful is to share our personal experience with others. The digital storytelling is a concept that combines two crucial aspects – the power of creating personal narratives and our modern need to “go digital”.
The proposed Training Course aims at bringing European youth workers together and teach them what digital storytelling is and how they can use it as a tool for working with young people at risk of social exclusion. During the project the participants will go through an intensive set of workshops giving them a chance to learn how to create their own digitalized stories. We believe that learning by doing will provide a deeper understanding of the method and therefore serve as an inspiration for creating similar projects in participants own communities.
Developing projects that are based on new methods and approaches seems to be especially important for those youth workers who are dealing with difficult social issues, as they very often lack proper and effective tools to address their beneficiaries. Digital storytelling is a very inclusive method that can be used in various contexts and therefore we hope the skills and knowledge gained during this Training Course will help our participants to create a new quality in their everyday work with young people.
