Planning and Preparing a Digital Storytelling Project

Confidentiality and Anonymity

The digital storytelling project involves group participation, and as such, anonymity is not possible. Still, every effort should be made to ensure the confidentiality of project participants.

While the project will require participants to maintain the confidentiality of other project participants, there is the risk that some participants may not honour their confidentiality, by talking about personal matters that may have been shared or discussed by other participants. This issue will need to be addressed verbally, as well as in writing, through participant consent. See participant consent forms included in Guide 4: Logistics, Checklists, and Resources for Digital Storytelling Facilitators.
