Your organization has great stories to tell. This 3-part on-line workshop will introduce
you to an exciting way to tell them. Digital storytelling combines visuals and sound
to communicate about the work you do, resulting in a short video all about your organization. This workshop meets three times on-line, with support between sessions to help you learn the tools and create your first story. With support from Freshwater Future staff, you will create a 2-4 minute digital story to use for fundraising, to motivate volunteers, public outreach and more.
