Are you a journalist, writer or managing a creative business in Georgia? Starting 21 October The Calvert Journal will be hosting free digital storytelling workshops in Kutaisi, Batumi and Tbilisi.
The workshops come in two specialisations: Digital Storytelling for Journalists and Writers and Digital Storytelling for Cultural Projects. The journalism workshops will concentrate on developing story ideas and pitching them to editors and publications, with a focus on social issues, especially those that affect marginalised groups: LGBT communities, ethnic minorities, and women, among others. The Cultural Projects workshops will be particularly useful for those who work at creative enterprises, charities, cultural projects or NGOs with a focus on social issues and will concentrate on telling and communicating clear stories, connecting with the right audiences and growing followings for the projects.
