Continue the journey! From 5:00PM – 8:30PM we will mix and mingle with each other, and end the evening with an engaging and exciting panel on digital storytelling for nonprofits at Boulder Digital Arts. Location and directions here.
THE POWER OF VIDEO STORYTELLING FOR NON-PROFITS.
The panel will begin at 6:30PM and conclude at 8:30PM.
Nonprofits have been tasked with communicating some of the most important stories of our time– but only a handful actually succeed in engaging the masses. With the explosion of YouTube, mobile devices, KONY2012, and viral videos in general, you may be starting to understand the power of video storytelling, but might not necessarily know know how to do it well. This visual and inspiring panel will help get you started!
