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, from high school students in Denver--a mural club,  a series from Chemainus, British Columbia)

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