Meeting Description:
Making storytelling an organizational priority is as important as the technology you use to tell your story.
Successful storytelling does not happen in a blink of an eye, out of thin air, or by pressing a magic button. In fact, storytelling done right is a multi-tiered process that requires working with staff, donors, and beneficiaries to organize, produce, and publish assets to the web. 

Please join us on April 4 at 11 a.m. Pacific time for this first installment of our TechSoup Digital Storytelling Challenge webinar series. Our guests will speak to the importance of creating a culture of storytelling at your nonprofit, library, charity, or social benefit organization.

Viktor Sjöberg is the Digital Services Librarian at the Escondido Public Library. Escondido Public Library’s LibraryYOU project invites community members to step beyond being consumers of information to become content creators and share their knowledge and expertise on any topic. Viktor recruits and contacts contributors, plans and executes the production process, which involves filming, recording and editing material. He is involved in LibraryYOU training, development of educational content and Library website updates. Along with Teen Librarian Joanna Axelrod, Viktor has recently launched a new outreach program for teens called Pop Up Podcast. The program is a fun after school-activity that provides an opportunity for teens to learn about audio recording technology while developing self-expression and presentation skills. Viktor holds a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Borås in Sweden.
