Planning and Preparing a Digital Storytelling Project

Recruitment

Once the specific criteria and number of participants have been determined, recruitment can take place. Projects may be tailored to any group composition. For example your project may have a specific focus on one of the following groups:

  • Daughters of survivors
  • Sons of survivors
  • Grandchildren of survivors
  • Mixed groups
  • Educators working with descendants of survivors

Whatever the decided composition of the group, recruitment can take a variety of approaches. Posters can be distributed to local community organizations such as Friendship Centres, community centres, Aboriginal student centres, libraries, etc. Social media can also be a good way to find participants for your project.
