Sahiyo in the U.S. presents a workshop opportunity in May 2018 in collaboration with StoryCenter

From May 4-6, 2018, in conjunction with StoryCenter, Sahiyo in the U.S. will host a 3-day workshop in Berkeley, CA where eight women who grew up in the Bohra community and live in the United States can come together to create their own digital storytelling videos about FGC and the work they do.

This project will culminate in the professional production of a two- to three-minute video of participants sharing the story of their anti-FGC advocacy journey. Participants will have full access to this video and full permissions to use it for their own ongoing community leadership and advocacy efforts after the training, and the facilitators will also work to deepen your knowledge of participatory storytelling and the various uses and applications of digital storytelling.

If you’re interested in applying to participate in this advanced training—StoryCenter Sahiyo & in the U.S. will cover the cost of the project itself, as well as transportation and accommodations—please read the info below and complete this application by Friday, March 30, 2018. 

If you have any questions about this project, please feel free to contact
