High School spoken word workshops accompanied with hands on education in the production of mash up style documentaries.
Voice of a Generation Presents:
The Digital Storytelling Project
Our mission is to engage a new generation of informed, skilled and creative leaders capable of harnessing the power of media to preserve their community’s voice, share heritage and culture through the development of spoken word based documentaries.
This is a call for financial support to provide in-class spoken word workshops and hands on education for the production of digital documentaries at Sky Line Public High School in Oakland, Ca.
The end results will be youth poetry and film projects used in the media of community based organizations, shown at High schools, in youth film festivals, a culminating spoken word performance and satisfaction of High school senior project graduation requirements.
Digital Storytellers has 501(c)(3) non-profit status through fiscal sponsorship by the Community Life Network. Donations are tax-deductible. We currently have a philanthropic organization providing a 50% match of funds contributed through our Kick Starter fundraising campaign

In this campaign we will secure funding to run a customized pilot program at Sky Line Public High School. Our goal is to reach $8,000 between September 15st and October 15th.
These funds will pay for workshop facilitators, grant writers, film and editing equipment, as well as our quarterly performance.
