Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area NSW – Connections newsletter – Place stories training

From Connections newsletter

“The World Heritage Unit plan to hold PLACESTORIES training sessions for interested Aboriginal community members of the GBMWHA.
PLACESTORIES is a software system for managing digital media, creating digital stories and publishing online. PLACESTORIES is supporting the storytelling, networking and digital communication needs of community organisations, government agencies and others who work with communities, particularly rural and regional areas.
You don’t need to be computer savvy! All you need is some images (old black and whites or digital photos), a voice and maybe a special sound recording or music. You will be creating a 3-5 minute presentation that you can upload to the web or keep on a CD/DVD for your family or community’s personal access.
Go to: http://www.sydneynrm.placestories.com/ to see other examples of PLACESTORIES including the Living
Country Culture Camp …
You can do the training yourself or nominate someone from your family, respective group or organisation to do the training.
A two day training session will be held from 14th to 15th May 2010
PLACESTORIES and National Parks staff will provide ongoing support to all participants.
LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE, BOOK NOW
