Rima (www.rimaproject.org) is launching a digital storytelling workshop, held by Francesca Vitalini, an Italian journalist, and Dagmawi Yimer, an Ethiopian film director, that will be examining the elements that are required to create a story and to share it through social media. Participants will first have the opportunity to brainstorm story concepts on the theme of migration, exile, objects of memory and objects of/in displacement, then create short texts, pictures and videos with their smartphones, and finally share them as a method of self-narrative through the new social media platforms.

Being an interactive workshop, the Rima project aims to achieve two specific goals: make room for participants to express themselves by using storytelling techniques, and to give them the opportunity to acquire the relevant skills in the field of social media management and photo & video production. By putting an emphasis on creativity and critical thinking, participants collaborate with each other in order to identify stories and performance techniques that most powerfully convey the experience of communication in the 21st century.

Open to individuals who have experienced exile and migration in the past, participants of the Rima project will be selected at the discretion of the Rima team, with the number of participants being limited to just 6.
