DIGITAL

STORYTELLING

Dr. Bhat has recently completed her digital storytelling facilitator training at StoryCenter, a not-for-profit organization in Berkeley CA. After having participated as a student as well as a volunteer in the workshops in the past year, she found digital storytelling to be a creative, cathartic and healing process. As a survivor, preventionist, and an aspiring film-maker, Dr. Bhat is excited to use digital storytelling to educate, train, and teach others to share their stories, thus fostering social change.

 

For example, she participated in the "Stories of Home" project by StoryCenter and as a result of this workshop, a short film titled "Dear Aayee" was created. She also wrote about her personal experience as a first generation immigrant and an immersive storyteller and interviewed other storyteller participants in an article published in Ms. Magazine.
