Digital storytelling is a broad and diverse practice for creative expression and more formal education. In this webinar, we will provide a brief introduction to the many different digital storytelling modalites, its practical applications for both personal and institutional storytelling, as well as how to provide support for digital storytelling on a shoestring budget. 


Hear from librarians currently supporting digital storytelling practices in their own libraries, and how practitioners are building off library based media centers and makerspaces to support new modes of creation.


Registrants will have opportunities to ask the panelists questions during the live recording. The webinar will be recorded and made available for FMRT members online following the events.
