Digital Storytelling Showcase a total success!

Participants of the Digital Storytelling course showcased their work last night at Paved Arts. The works were impressive in and of themselves, but even more so that they were put together in 10 days, which included learning the software used to create the pieces.

Thank you to all of those who attended the event (over 130 of you)!

Also, we are deeply grateful to Ellen Moffat who facilitated the program, and all of those who gave workshops and artist talks as part of the course: Barb Reimer, Laura St. Pierre, Tasha Hubbard, Khodi Dill, Allison Muri, Carrie Gates, Taylor Leedahl, and Stephen Rutherford.
