In Norway – World Wide Narrative arranged a film screening and celebration of their last workshop. They had young people being part of their workshop who wished to do video editing and tell their stories, but none of them had tried it before. It was a success and they had a gathering around the film with popcorn and screening of their stories.
We have now uploaded some new stories to the site. They have been made in Copenhagen with some young people from a production school. They have english subtitle and the storyteller are aware that they are public and signed an agreement contract.
Please listen to some of the stories here:
Vær den bedste side af dig selv:
We have now had 2 workshops in Copenhagen with 15 young people who shared their stories about life in Denmark. The 15 digital stories can be seen here at the website in start January 2019. All the stories are made public with the permission of the young people.
We have done some effective marketing in various media about this project.
In Iceland they have published their experiences from the workshops at the University Of Iceland website (http://rannsoknasetur.hi.is/vinnusmidja_sogur_ad_nordan)
The other one is the invitation they made for recruiting young participants to their workshops.
In Denmark we went to the International Digital Storytelling Conference in Greece and did presentation and a paper which can be downloaded here RP_HenningsenLohmannOerngreen

Last week we came home from the International Digital Storytelling Conference where we did a presentation of Stories From The North. It gave us a lot of publicity and the participants had a lot of questions about our stories and the future of the project.
International Digital Storytelling Conference: Current trends in digital storytelling.
The Nordic has sponsored us to join the conference and spread the news about Stories From The North. We are happy to take part of the conference where we will give a presentation about the project and our findings so far. We will show some stories from our platform.
About the conference:
The theme of the conference, “Current Trends in Digital Storytelling: Research & Practices”, signifies the transitional phase of Digital Storytelling (DST) towards an established community of research and practice. At this pivotal point, it is crucial to obtain a reflective mapping of the major current trends of research and practices in DST, emphasising the convergences and the divergences in the various perspectives, which crucially nurture and form the complexity of this diverse, yet functionally linked community.
The conference is scheduled from 21st to 23rd of September 2018. The conference will be hosted by the Technological Educational Institute of Ionian Islands in Zakynthos (Zante), Greece. Zakynthos is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece offering unique natural attractions and places of historical and cultural interest, thus being a highly popular tourist attraction. The conference dates were purposefully chosen to offer excellent weather conditions with relatively lower number of visitors
