Our Digital Storytellers in Residence project, funded by the Scottish Government, supported 7 Scottish library services to run digital storytelling workshops in their communities. After the workshops, 84% of participants agreed that 'it’s important to record stories like mine'.
Each library service hosted a Digital Storyteller to support selected groups to create digital stories about personal experiences important to them. Digital stories were then archived and shared with the public online through the Digital Stories website(this will open in a new window).
Our project helped people to create and share digital stories about events in their lives. Taking part boosted people’s sense of social inclusion and helped them develop digital skills in a fun and meaningful way.
As part of the Digital Storytellers in Residence project:
- 495 workshops were delivered
- 107 groups participated
- 363 people recorded their stories
