In September, SMEX will offer two workshops on digital storytelling. These trainings will help NGOs, activists, and civil society organizers use a variety of digital media, including photos, drawings, audio, and/or video, to tell compelling stories. The workshop will cover the main components of storytelling, how to plan and produce stories, and how to publish stories to YouTube.
