The Brighton workshop took place over the weekend 22nd – 24th September and saw 8 participants create stories about their experiences and passions for reading. It struck me again the variety of styles of storytelling not only in the range of media used (photography, drawing, animation and video) but also in the storytelling styles that everyone used. I love digital storytelling especially when it pushes the boundaries of storytelling, different forms of creative writing which can really bounce off the imagery used. From fingers flicking pages in Izzy’s slo-mo video to collaborative storytelling in Wilkie’s; the close up creases of Anne to unicorns in Mysicalaria and the intimate portraits of family reading in ‘no easy answers’. I feel privileged to be a part of such creativity!
Roll on Sheffield.
