Every Image Tells a Story
Mission of Visual Storytelling
We want you to learn the language of visual media, to use in making contact with stakeholders in social work, education or social enterprises, to find out what their needs are, to make a better world together.
What is Visual Storytelling
An image tells more than a thousand words. If you show a picture to someone, it tells something about you. An image invites you to tell a story about your life. Images do recall memories and emotions. If you tell people stories with an emotional content, there can be understanding.
You can make visual stories with e.g. refugees, siblings, stakeholders in Social Work.
If stories will have an emotional content, both participants will feel better and understood. They can visualize the stories with photographs, short movies, drawings, stop motion films, and add songs, narration, sound effects and music.
In the workshops Visual Storytelling you learn how to use the media to tell your story. You use your own device. You can draw, take pictures, make a story in Scratch, use free pictures from Creative Commons, or use offline images from magazines and make drawings, collages, portraits or Digital Stories.
We can decide in the preparations what kind of workshop is appropriate for your group and what techniques we can use. As participant, you will get access to a tailor made online learning environment with examples, weblectures, instructions and reference information. In this supportive learning environment all members are invited to active participation.
