Creating Digital Stories


Friday, April 8, 2016 - 12:00 to 14:00
Sharon Gubbay Helfer

English workshop with bilingual Q&A.

Once we complete our oral history interviews, what can we do if we want them to be seen and heard? How can we ensure that our interviews are not forgotten on an archive shelf? Short digital stories, created with the collaboration of interviewees, are one way to share the stories that we have been told.

How is a digital story made? What different approaches are there? What tools? Based on different examples, including from her personal practice, Sharon Gubbay Helfer will address the process of creating a digital story, from storyline to editing, in a participative process involving the interviewee. If they wish, participants are invited to bring their ideas and projects to discuss with Sharon and the group.

Sharon Gubbay Helfer is an oral historian, video-biographer and researcher in the area of difficult dialogues. For the past decade she has been involved with digital storytelling as a means of sharing community projects and academic research, as well as privately with her clients at Big Tree Life Stories.
