Untold a week-long programme of activities exploring Digital Storytelling theory and practice from across the world

UnTold

UEL is pleased to host Untold a week-long programme of activities exploring Digital Storytelling theory and practice from across the world.

Digital Storytelling is a workshop based process where people with little or no experience of media production learn to tell a personal story using their own material.  It is widely used in community settings, in the museum and archives sector, by healthcare professionals, in Higher Education, international development work and by youth work.

We are now able to offer places at two special events which will be of interest to academics using participatory research methodologies, media practitioners and those concerned with representation and voice in the media.

A one day Un-Conference on Weds 12th July where academics, practitioners and community groups can come together to share experience of Digital Storytelling as means to develop new projects.

  1. A one day masterclass called Untold Secrets in Digital Storytelling Facilitation on Thurs 13th
