About the Session:
Digital stories are short videos that a storyteller, often with no video-making experience, creates a true story from their personal life. From script to credits, the storyteller, with the help of workshop facilitators, puts together a 2-3 minute video through a 20 plus hour process that is intense, and potentially transformative. Digital stories have been used to capture stories within diverse populations, including among persons with lived experience. During this hour -long presentation, digital storytelling workshop facilitator Anna Quon will present several digital stories created at the CMHA Halifax-Dartmouth branch during 2014-15, describe the digital storytelling process and answer questions as well as encourage the audience to write their comments to the digital storytellers whose works are presented.
NCPLE member Anna Quon is a middle-aged, mixed-race Madwoman; a writer and workshop facilitator, artist, digital storyteller and emerging filmmaker from Halifax, Nova Scotia. She is a fan of the informal mental health system and a believer in the healing power of creative expression and peer support.
