Hello! I made this video to share my experience dancing with rhematoid arthritis. I made a video a few months ago about why I dance, and many people had questions about my personal story and what it's like to dance with arthritis, so I made this follow-up video. I hope to share it with those who have arthritis, or any other challenge.
I learned how to create digital stories through working with Bridges to Understanding, a nonprofit based in Seattle that connects children in different countries through digital storytelling. I am currently studying to become an Occupational Therapist and am very interested in the therapeutic application of digital stories. I have created a few digital stories based on my experiences swing dancing with arthritis. I'm looking forward to seeing all the stories that have been created by people on the Stories for Change community!
Hi! I live in Seattle and I’ve been involved with Bridges to Understanding since 2004. After two years as a weekly volunteer classroom mentor with Bridges classrooms in Seattle, I joined the staff in 2006, and now serve as Program Director. Since joining Bridges I’ve taught in numerous digital storytelling workshops in Seattle as well as at our international sites in Guatemala, Peru and India. I also manage the Bridges web site and develop curriculum. I love teaching and working with youth to help them photograph, produce and share their stories.
I came to Bridges through photography: I am fascinated by the odd details and everyday beauty of the places in which we live, and I’m interested in telling stories of people and places through photographs.
I'm looking forward to being part of this community ! Thanks!
The open workshop is a great introduction to digital storytelling. The goal of the workshop is to design and produce a 3-5 minute digital story. Students craft and record first-person narratives, collect still images, video, and music to illustrate their pieces, and are guided through digital image/video editing software tutorials which enable them, with teacher support, to edit their own stories.
The workshop will be held at the 911 Media Arts Center.
Hi! I'm Tasha, currently living in Seattle but I learned about digital storytelling and got into the field in the Boston area. My main interests are the ways that we can use these stories as tools for community organizing and social change. I'm so excited to see this site up and running and looking forward to meeting you all...
