We are pleased to have launched our virtual workshop series on April 15, 2021. This workshop was aimed at those interested in translating family lore into digital format so that it can be passed on for generations to come.
Over the duration of the three workshops, the series introduced participants to interviewing, storytelling, filmmaking and editing with phone and computer applications. Participants also had the opportunity to view each other’s films and hear each other’s stories. No prior experience was required.
Open to the general public, the workshops took place Thursday, April 15th, 29th, and May 13th from 5:30-7:30pm PDT.
If you would like to learn more about the workshops or be alerted of the next round, please email pchcmom.events[@]gmail.com.
