There are many techniques of storytelling around, but the digital storytelling method espoused by the Center for Digital Storytelling is the most engaging, rewarding, and cathartic process I have experienced, and seen others experience. And the most amazing part is, it all happens within a few days, and you have a solid piece of work to show at the end. It's a wonderfully versatile method that leaves participants and organizers with a great sense of fulfillment.

  – Sameera Huque, Custom Workshop participant

For nearly twenty years, the Center has been supporting people in sharing meaningful stories from their lives. Our unique workshops assist participants in producing short, first-person narratives that can be presented in a variety of traditional and social media formats. We provide non-threatening production environments in which the process of creation is valued as much as the stories created.

Through partnerships with a range of organizations, institutions, and funders, we offer story making and story distribution services that prioritize the power of individual voices. Whether you're interested in storytelling for professional development, as a reflective practice, as a pedagogical strategy, or as a vehicle for education, community mobilization, or advocacy, we are recognized globally as experts in all things digital storytelling.
