Why Choose Visual Stories

Single Images (Still photos, paintings, etc) convey strong emotion, a single point or mood

They can speak more loudly than words, especially in this image-centered era

Images can show things differently, and show different things.


Digital Tools

Soundslide  (It is not free, but what professionals use; also invites audio)

Look at Alan Levine's List of Storytelling Tools




Artshows (Visions of the Now and of the Future) Example of an Online Exhibition

Photo-stories pinned to map in town (or online via Community Almanac)

Postcards or eCards  Example from Minnesota

Slide-stories (Stories in Five Images)  Example from Minnesota and from Maine

Before-and-After Photo Displays in the library, at school, in the newspaper

Comic stories online or in a 'zine

Collages as Posters or Online (glogster example)

Murals about town (Example from Canada, another from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, one from Philadephia, one from Duke University's Face Up! Project)

At a story klatch, bring photos to stir the conversation/story pot
