Digital Storytelling workshop (alumni-focused)

September 23, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wednesday, Sep 23, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. (PST) 

FREE/online/Space is limited

Honors graduates come from all backgrounds, and are spread out around the world, but share the same passion for learning and for participating in hard conversations and movements like those we are seeing today. Still, many of us are experiencing isolation, despair, and other strong emotions we can’t contextualize nor work through in the course of our daily lives. We need deep interpersonal connections as we encounter vast, complex problems in our world and work to discover a sense of possibility and agency. The more we understand our own journeys and positions of influence, the more we are able to offer and make an impact.

During our 2-hour online digital storytelling workshop, Dr. Juliana Villegas* will introduce you to tools and methods to explore your individual stories and values, while honoring the stories of others — to help us collectively imagine better possible futures. 

Please RSVP HERE and we will confirm your spot and send details to help you prepare for the workshop.
