Our take

Storytelling is perhaps the most powerful tool in communication; people respond to stories more than any other tool. Heritage and Art, inherently, present history and stories, however, we need to learn the means to better tell these stories to promote heritage and engage new audiences. The Digital Storytelling Festival is always a fantastic event to hone these skills and learn from others.
