RJ WEEK 2016: Potentials of storytelling
The International RESTORATIVE JUSTICE WEEK will take place on 20-27 November 2016. The EFRJ is organising a series of activities bringing together arts, justice and storytelling. These RJ WEEK 2016 will include activities not only for passively experiencing and ‘consuming’ stories, but also for sharing and creating them, such as a master class on theatre as a restorative tool, a cartoon workshop and a digital storytelling workshop. #RJWeek: follow us on social media!
Digital Storytelling & Restorative Practices
25 November, 10.00-15.00 (KU Leuven MTC room 00.59, Pauscollege Adrianus VI- Hogeschoolplein 3)
Nele Gulinck and Erik Claes are lecturers at Odisee (school of social work) and action-researchers in urban settings. They both combine expertise in digital storytelling and restorative justice.
The training will include a short presentation (on digital storytelling, its history and techniques, etc.) and a practical workshop where participants, divided in small groups, will develop their own short films. The aim of this training is to produce short films for digital platforms sharing meaningful restorative stories.
The training will focus on restorative topics (resentment, forgiveness, reconciliation, healing), with a special attention on storytelling in public space.
The training has different purposes: to introduce participants with the basic techniques of digital storytelling; to create a safe environment to share personal stories; to collect material for raising awareness during the RJ WEEK 2016.
The training is limited to 10 participants. At the moment of registration, participants will be asked their main motivation to attend this training and a draft idea of the story they would like to share.
Please note that limited seats are reserved for each activity!
