Storytelling as a Game

Description: 

In this session, Hali Dardar, Partnerships Manager at Historypin, describes how storytelling is an integral part of community vitality and intergenerational knowledge transfer. However, designing a successful and attended program to achieve these means can be tricky. Participants of the workshop participated in a demo storytelling game and heard about the design process that went into the development of the OneStoryCloser Storytelling game. The session focused on supporting participants in designing low-tech, oral history projects for community engagement, and may be especially helpful for community organizers and directors interested in taking new approaches to community engagement. This session was part of the ATALM annual conference held in Temecula, California, on October 8-10, 2019.
