Asian Digital Storytelling Congress: Beyond Words
Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Nearly 80 countries worldwide have been introduced to it and the massive growth in the last few years has demonstrated the strength of this distinct new genre of communication. By examining new creative works, the Congress, an international meeting of professionals and digital media enthusiasts, will discuss, share and communicate new concepts in the art of digital storytelling. The discussion will lay its focus on the use of digital storytelling in education, language comprehension, community building, personal development and entertainment.
Who Should Attend?
Multimedia producers, storytelling enthusiasts, teachers, trainers, archivists, educators, librarians, and community development officers who participate in the Congress will take back with them collective wisdom and expertise that they will gather from some of the best talents of the world in Digital Storytelling.
Other Individuals and communities, with little or no background in Digital Media, will likewise benefit from their participation in the Congress.
