Sensitive Storytelling

Course Overview

It has been said that fundraisers are, in essence, story tellers – they tell of the needs of people,
animals and the environment so we understand how we can help meet these needs through
giving. When someone offers to share their story with your organisation it is a gift that needs
to be treated with empathy, respect and gratitude. In this interactive workshop, video and
animation agency, Laundry Lane, will discuss the why and how of a sensitive storytelling approach.

Participants will learn how to tell compelling stories about sensitive topics in creative, memorable ways without compromising the dignity or privacy of your subjects. You’ll be shown how to apply a sensitivity lens to all areas of production and communication for both video and animation.
