As the Tenement Museum staff set out to explore the field, we found many innovative and inspiring projects, but we couldn’t find a shared database to consider the field and share best practices. To that end, we hosted a Digital Storytelling workshop in New York on May 1-3, 2016 and invited 20 professional working on digital storytelling projects at museums from across the country.
This website includes our learning from the workshop and a the beginnings of a digital-age storytelling toolkit. This toolkit is just one way of approaching a digital-age storytelling, and is grounded in our experiences and take-aways from the 2016 Conference, and 2017 Reunion.
We hope you will share your projects and experiences with the toolkit as well!
