*****WHAT IS DIGITAL STORYTELLING?***** 

Digital Storytelling is a creative and innovative method of participatory practice that engages ordinary people to use digital tools (still & moving pictures, music, sound, text, and narrative voice) in an expressive way to tell their stories in short 3-5 minute films.

 API Health Parity Coalition, in partnership with the Center for Digital Storytelling, conducted intensive 3-day workshops that included reflective writing, shared group story circles, group affirmation and feedback, guided reflection and script writing, audio recording of the storytellers’ voice, video editing learning (even for people with limited computer skills), and assisted digital story crafting and refining. 

API Health Parity Coalition hopes to use these stories about mental wellness for community education, anti-stigma campaigns, and advocacy to policymakers/funders.

~~~~~~~~~

The Asian & Pacific Islander Health Parity Coalition is a coalition of 30+ agencies in San Francisco that serve API communities. They envision healthy Asian & Pacific Islander (API) communities in San Francisco. Their mission is to achieve health parity for San Francisco’s Asian & Pacific Islander communities by identifying and addressing health and healthcare issues.
