Call for participants : Love Stories

Digital story-telling workshop about Non-monogamy and the romantic idea of love

Emotional and/ or sexual involvement with one or more people, friendship, open relationships, monogamy and non-monogamy, polyamory, friends with benefits, platonic love, crushes…the list can go on forever.

Do you want a safe space where you can talk about it all?
Do you want to discover and create your own love story?
Do you want to share it using multi-media tools?

Then come join us for our digital story-telling workshop about non-monogamy and the romantic idea of love!

Maria and Irina, gender and sexuality graduates and activists, will guide you through four-sessions of digital story-telling that will allow you to find your story and express it. The result of this workshop will be creation and collection of digital stories.

Digital story-telling refers to a form of low-tech video-making that allows people to share aspects of their lives. A digital story consists of images, music, voice-over and text and lasts between 2 and 6 minutes.

Who can participate? Anyone interested in joining the workshop. Because this is a no-cost/ low-cost workshop, you will need your own laptop in the last two sessions of the workshop. Ideally, we hope to have a group of no more than 8 participants.

Please send your name and a short paragraph about your motivation to join the workshop to of [dot] love [dot] stories [at] gmail [dot] com.
