Cardiff – June – it must be DS8

DS8 logoThe next Digital Storytelling Festival will be again be at Chapter Arts in Cardiff on Friday 14th June 2013. It’s hosted by the University of Glamorgan’s George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling. Last year’s event was a great day and there’s no reason not to be at DS8 this year.

It is the one UK event that attracts a wide range of digital storytellers. Practitioners and academics exchange ideas and experience; and it’s a vital place to network and update your practice. I always enjoy being in Wales for this event. There’s no doubt that some of the best digital storytelling practice has been developed in this relatively small country. I owe much of my experience to people who live and work there.

The organisers are inviting submissions for papers to be presented at the festival – but they are keen to emphasise that it’s not a purely academic event. There’s room for practitioners to share their best work too. More information on the DS8 Festival site.
