Join the Digital Storytelling Summer Camp!

This blog post about the Library's Digital Storytelling Summer Camp is written by Matt L., Woods Memorial Library.

Digital storytelling involves utilizing digital tools and media, like photos and audio, to create compelling narratives and communicate messages that engage. It combines traditional storytelling techniques with the use of technology to create a more immersive experience.

Are you interested? Great!

The Library is hosting a free Digital Storytelling Summer Camp for ages 14 to 24. The theme of this year's camp is resilience and belonging.

A light lunch will be provided.

Come learn new skills and create your story.
  • Do you want to celebrate your friends and family and how they support you?
  • Do you have a story about an organization or group who does good work in the community? Have you completed a project you are proud of?
  • Do you have a personal story of resilience? Why is resilience important to young people in our community right now?
  • What was a time when your family, friends or community helped you get through a difficult situation? Was there a time when you helped someone else feel a sense of belonging?
  • What are some things about your cultural identity that make you feel proud?

You have been through a lot, and we know you have an important story to tell. This is an opportunity to help yourself and help others who may see your story. The digital story you create belongs to you and we will share it only with your permission.

Here are sample digital stories from Tucson youth:
