Digital Storytelling Workshop — Climate Change

17th May – 6th June, Various locations

Come and take part in a creative process that involves you in the development of a story and the creation of a film that will focus on what we can do to address climate change. The film could be personal or speculative, it could take up different positions and use different processes. As a group you will work together and be supported by Dr Antonia Liguori and the digital storytelling team at Loughborough University. You will make and share digital stories that seek to increase visibility of issues around climate change.

There are a number of stages in the digital storytelling process and we have split this project into three sessions:

Session 1

Introduction, story-telling and storyboard phase

Friday 17 May 4-6pm  Room 0.07, Martin Hall, English and Drama Dept, Loughborough University

This first session can involve bringing in objects that embody something meaningful to you connected to the topic of climate change or simply thinking about examples of how you can make a difference to preventing climate change. You will learn how to create a storyboard and write a script.


Session 2

Production, video editing

Monday 3 June  2-6pm Room 630.32, Digital Lab, School of Arts, Edward Barnsley Building, Loughborough University

At the second session you will learn video editing techniques to be able to successfully make a film of your story.


Session 3

Discussion and presentation

Thursday 6 June  12-2pm  Stanley Evernden theatre, Martin Hall, English and Drama Dept, Loughborough University

A screening of the finished work will be accompanied by a discussion with the participants and members of the digital storytelling research group. Friends and family members are welcome to come along with you to this event.

All three sessions will be supported by trained facilitators and all materials and equipment are provided.

If you wish to be part of this project then you will need to commit to all three sessions; please register for each session. This project is open to Loughborough University students, staff and members of the public.
