[WEBINAR] Digital Storytelling for Change: The Art of the Interview
A new assessment of the impact of the global storytelling initiative Family Planning Voices shows that stories and storytelling have the potential to change health knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. On June 7, 2018, K4Health and the International Youth Alliance on Family Planning (IYAFP) hosted a skills-building webinar to share key tips for capturing an essential story element—the interview—with a mobile phone.
Moderator Sarah Harlan and facilitator Liz Futrell presented and demonstrated key considerations and processes for story collection and development and engaged participants in interactive practice activities. Drawing from their work on Family Planning Voices, they examined the value of using stories and storytelling to communicate about the issues that matter to the family planning community. Participants left with an understanding of the opportunities to capture stories or use storytelling in their own work and with some practical steps they can take toward doing so.
This webinar is the first of a three-part skills-building series on digital storytelling. The second webinar, to be held in July, will focus on the art of photography, and the third, in August, will examine how to use writing and storytelling to communicate and advocate effectively.
