Free Native Health Digital Storytelling Workshop

"What's Your Story?"


The Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center [ ] is pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for American Indian public health professionals who are interested in telling their stories and learning more about the power of storytelling in public health. The center will be partnering with the Center for Digital Storytelling [ ] to offer a six-session workshop during which participants will design and produce a three- to five-minute digital story about their work in public health. Participants will craft and record first-person narratives, collect still images, video and music with which to illustrate their pieces. Through the workshop you will have access to, training on, and facilitator support using video-editing software. Workshops size is limited and you will receive individualized support. At the end of the workshop, you will have a finished product -- your own digital story.

Workshop facilitators will offer story prompts to help you tell a story about how you connect to your work in public health (such as asking why you do the work you do, what brought you to the work, and what keeps you doing the work). Participating in the storytelling journey will give you a nuanced understanding of how digital storytelling can impact your public health practice.

This workshop is available for free to those working in the public health sector in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. This workshop will be offered in an online format, so no travel is required. The Native Health Workshop starts August 25, 2015. The workshop is six sessions, meeting Tuesdays and Thursdays for three weeks from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mountain Time.

A short application must be completed before participation. It can be found here: [ ]

The facilitators at the Center for Digital Storytelling [ ] are recognized globally as experts in digital storytelling. To learn more about this organization, visit them online at [ ]. You can find an example of a digital story on YouTube at this link: [ ]

The Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center will offer opportunities to share the story you create as part of training and educational efforts for others in the public health workforce, for those who are willing. (Note: This is not a requirement for participation.)
