At the Heart of the Matter: Personal Storytelling in a Digital World

Friday April 13th, 2018

 

 

At the Heart of the Matter is a storytelling process that is recognized internationally for supporting individual and group healing, for  promoting trust and understanding between diverse groups, and for creating compelling resources (i.e. stories) that can be used to educate the public and to guide policy makers in their efforts to address critical health issues and social and political concerns.

Consider checking out this powerful storytelling resource, either for yourself and/or to explore its potential for your organization.More information on this workshop can be found on our website at http://www.community-works.ca/heart-of-the-matter

We invite you to check out some examples of digital stories created by past At the Heart of the Matter participants, under the website Galleries tab athttp://www.community-works.ca/digital-stories.

At the Heart of the Matter are small workshops, with a maximum of 6 participants. We encourage you to register as soon as possible. Registration is confirmed once payment is received, at which time we will send you information to help you prepare for the workshop.

We will close registration on April 6, 2018 to insure that participants have a week to prepare a first draft of a story, collect images, etc.
