Wales and South West Regional Meeting

“Everybody has a story to tell.” This is the powerful concept behind Digital Storytelling. The practice aims to give a voice to ordinary people and prove that you don’t have to be a ‘professional’ or a ‘gifted artist’ to make a creative contribution to the society. Originating in California in the 1970s and 80s, it took advantage of the then emerging technologies of personal computers and digital photography and recording, technologies that have grown out of all recognition in the last few years. The techniques behind digital storytelling are relatively straight forward and this talk will present these techniques, using stories captured to support the work of the charity, Mothers of Africa, and the Phoenix Project, a Cardiff University Engagement project based in Namibia.

Paul Crompton is former head of the Media Resources Centre at the University Hospital of Wales. Since retiring he has continued to support the work of Mothers of Africa and Phoenix, documenting their activity and achievements.
