DigiTales is a not-for-profit research and participatory media company hosted by the Department of Media and Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Digital storytelling is at the heart of how we work with individuals, groups and organisations. We provide collaborative workshops which enable people to find, tell and share their stories in a digital environment.

We have worked with partners from across Europe and beyond, using digital storytelling as a means to develop creative skills and talents and build confidence of people whose voices might otherwise not be heard.   We also use digital storytelling as a co-creative action research method. We are part of a growing network of almost 600 digital storytelling practitioners, projects and organisations across the globe.

This Month’s Story:

Untold Stories is a Civic Engagement project, supported by the University of East London’s (UEL) Civic Engagement Fund and the Salvation Army Housing Association (SAHA).  Digitales is working with 7 students from UEL to train them in Digital Storytelling facilitation, which they will then go on to apply as they facilitate a Digital Storytelling workshop in May 2017 at the University with young people from SAHA’s Braintree Foyer.  Foyers provide affordable and safe accommodation linked to employment and training opportunities, support and a range of other services for young people aged between 16 and 24.  The stories that are produced from the workshops will be screened at this year’s International Digital Storytelling get-together, the Untold Un-conference, which will be hosted by UEL on 11th and 12th July.  The first facilitator training workshop for the students took place on March 28-30th.
