'Our Community' is a project created
over one week at Teyfant Community School in Bristol.
As part of the project Dani Landau
worked with the 10-11 year old year group and their school teachers to create
digital stories set in places important to the children.
The groups spent the first half of
the week exploring and developing ideas through making and doing.
They then created visual material
which they used to tell their final stories - these included photos, paintings,
memory maps, and puppets. Then the children assembled all the material on computers to finish their stories.
The week was completed by screening
of the twelve stories in front of the whole junior school.
This workshop is just one example
from a wide range of investigational storytelling workshops being developed
by Dani Landau. The aim of this research is to develop the scope of storytelling
workshops using photos and other visual and audio material. firstname.lastname@example.org
