Digital Storytelling Workshop in Louisville

by Nick Montfort · , 8:10 pm

I just learned from Alice Robison that at the next Thomas R. Watson Conference there will be a special workshop on digital storytelling – as the announcement says,

We are also very excited to announce that in the spirit of this year’s Watson Conference theme, “The New Work of Composing,” we will host a three day digital storytelling workshop on the University of Louisville’s campus October 13-15, 2008. Workshop instruction will be provided by the Center for Digital Storytelling. Their website, www.storycenter.org, offers dozens of playable stories, a history of their organization, and links to valuable resources. Daniel Weinshenker, Director of the Center’s Denver office, will be teaching the Watson Conference Workshop. …

The registration fee is $400 for students and $600 for faculty. This fee covers three days of instruction, breakfast and lunch each day of the workshop, and the use of a conference laptop for the duration of the workshop. These fees are in addition to the regular registration fees for the conference. Enrollment is limited, so make sure to submit your registration as soon as possible. Applicants will be accepted in the order their registrations are received. For more information on the workshop or registration please visit our website.
