Storytelling has long been part of the international development profession’s toolbox.  Communications strategies and program monitoring and evaluation are two areas that storytelling features prominently. In recent years, digital platforms and mobile technologies have provided NGOs, donors, and academics a variety of new and innovative ways to collect stories, share information, and document the impact that international development work has in the communities where it takes place.

Please request an invite now to join us as we take an in-depth look at new tools and technologies that help us better tell the story of the projects we work on, including mobile phones, satellite imagery, and web-based platforms. We’ll seek answers to questions like:

  • Where does digital storytelling work the best? Where does it not work at all?
  • What new tools or approaches should we be experimenting with?
  • Who is leading the digital storytelling field? What are they learning?
  • What are the ethics in using the stories and imagery of others?

Please request an invite now to share your thoughts on digital storytelling with international development professionals, communications specialists, and technologists. We’ll have two experts to help guide the discussion:

We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited, so please request an invite now. Once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!
