Applications Accepted for a Free Digital Storytelling Workshop

Oceanside CAThe Oceanside Public Library will host a free, two-day Digital Storytelling Workshop sponsored by the California State Library and led by Berkeley-based StoryCenter.  The workshop will take place on Friday and Saturday, May 25 and 26 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Civic Center Library, at 330 North Coast Highway in downtown Oceanside. This workshop is limited to 15 participants, and spots will fill quickly.  Apply online at www.storycenter.org/oceanside by Tuesday, May 15, 2018, for consideration.

As part of our effort to cultivate community in Oceanside, the Oceanside Public Library invites you to share your family or personal experiences.  Selected Oceanside residents will have the opportunity to create a 2 to 4-minute video using personal and family images, videos and archival material.  Learn how to tell a great story, write and record a narration script, and learn the basics of video editing. The video you create will be publicly screened in July 2018, and will become part of a statewide archive of stories about life in California!

We are seeking stories that reflect the full spectrum of life in Oceanside.  Long-time residents and their families, newcomers, artists, community activists, social service and non-profit professionals, and veterans and civic leaders  – we want to hear from you.  Everyone has a story, let’s hear yours!

This FREE workshop is sponsored in part by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library.  For more information, please visit the library’s website at www.oceansidepubliclibrary.org, or call (760) 435-5600.
