Presentation Abstract @ YTH Live 2014
Imagery has the power to create subtle inner shifts within an individual that lead to larger external change. Our presentation explores how imagery becomes meaningful and moves storytellers and policymakers toward personal and community healing. Individuals and communities integrate digital storytelling in advocacy and research designed to advance reproductive health and justice. Our participatory and advocacy skills approach examines two videos created by digital storytellers at Denver-based Florence Crittenton High School in the project ‘Social Media for Sexual and Reproductive Rights, Access, and Justice’ funded by the Ford Foundation (2013-15). Whether you are a storyteller with a narrative to share, an evidence-based researcher or a health justice campaigner that relies on testimonials, we will explore how to craft digital stories with visual idioms of personal transformation and with imagery that works better with policymakers.
