We are looking for up to 30 people – practitioners and thinkers to join us for two days of conversation in Swansea in June 2021 – everyone who comes to the gathering will be a presenter and the sessions will be filmed to create an online event for a wider community in the Autumn.
Aim To further improve the UK health service through the development of digital storytelling
Objectives Bring key practitioners together Present sessions which stimulate new insights and thinking Provide time for conversations on and off stage Create film resources to continue building the community of practitioners on line following the gathering Involve policy makers, funders and influencers in the conversation
Would you like to be one of the 30 people at the gathering? Are you a clinician who has changed their practice as a result of a digital story, a patient who has told a story, a digital storyteller working in health, someone who commissions digital storytelling in the health service or a thinker who has ideas and insights to share?
Do you have something to say about ethics, narrative form, aesthetics, how stories have led to quality improvements, what the emotional impact on the teller was, what the pitfalls were or are you developing or evaluating the practice in new ways?
We are interested in facilitating conversations about every aspect of the digital storytelling practice that is developing across the NHS in the UK. What works and what doesn’t work….
