The Art of Storytelling

This fall, Creative Sonoma partnered with the Sonoma County Library on a digital storytelling project, bringing together 10 Sonoma residents with professional digital storytellers for two intense days of writing, editing, recording, and ultimately telling their stories in a digital format.

September 2016

This project is part of California Listens, a program of the California State Library and StoryCenter. Collectively, these stories provide just a small snapshot of the remarkably diverse experiences to be found in our backyard, and the power of words, images and music to communicate.

Please enjoy these vignettes from ten of our neighbors – some engaged in creative endeavors professionally – all engaged in creative activities personally.
