University of Toronto Scarborough, in partnership with community partners, hosted two-day digital story workshops for resident-led initiatives identified by community partners. Participants scripted, narrated, designed, and directed short stories that serve as a window into their lives and experiences and tell stories of Scarborough from within the community.

Individuals were trained on how to create a multimedia video capturing their story of community-building. Through these workshops, the University of Toronto Scarborough and our community partners are working together to build capacity and invest in professional and leadership development opportunities for residents across Scarborough.

Workshops were facilitated by Digital Storytelling Toronto, an initiative of Centre for Community Learning & Development. Thank you to Free Geek Toronto for providing laptops for these workshops.
