Monterey Library to Host Digital Storytelling Workshop


Make your own digital Story

Monterey Public Library
625 Pacific Street
Monterey, CA 93940

The Monterey Public Library invites you to share your family or personal experiences and learn the basics of Digital Storytelling. This free, two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday, June 16-19 from 9am – 5 pm is part of California Listens, a summer-long program sponsored by the California State Library and led by Berkeley-based StoryCenter.

In this workshop, you will create a 2 to 4-minute video using your personal and family images, videos and archival material. Learn how to tell a great story, write and record a narration script, and the basics of video editing. The video you create will become part of a statewide archive of stories about life in California!

We are seeking stories that reflect the full spectrum of life in Monterey County.  Long-time residents and their families, newcomers, artists, community activists, social service and non-profit professionals,  and veterans and civic leaders  – we want to hear from you

Apply online: by June 1.

There is a limit of 15 participants for this workshop.

Everyone has a story!  Let’s hear yours!

Here is a sample story from the California Listens archive.
