Workshop Presentations

Our expert-led workshops explored how charities can tell their stories digitally and where they can best place them in the digital space.

We design and deliver half day and one day training workshops in digital storytelling from introductory workshops on tools, platforms and content production to specific courses on blogging, audio, film making and editing, as well as content strategy. We can also help you identify, tell and share your stories digitally and face to face.

We work across the UK and would work with you to tailor a course to suit your organisation. Get in touch today to find out more: bespoke@mediatrust.org or 0207 871 5645
