Sessions & Schedule 2013

Sessions are typically two-weeks long, beginning on Monday mornings and ending on Sunday nights. Each session focuses on some aspect of creativity and introduces a medium for digital storytelling. Workshops for each session introduce the questions with related resources to begin your exploration. The tasks are usually simple, one-time things expected of everyone while projects are personally selected from a host of digital storytelling choices. Challenges may be designed for small groups. Playshops to prepare for projects and challenges and the actual completion of the projects and challenges are asynchronous. Studio Time is held every Thursday night between 7 and 9 pm. On the first Thursday of the session, Studio Time will include guest creatives, demonstrations, and/or live tutorials. On the second Thursday night of the session, Studio Time will include a “gallery opening” with the sharing and critique of projects/challenges completed during that session.
