Enhancing Women's Participation in Turkey through Digital Storytelling

22.11.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This paper explores the process of introducing Digital Storytelling (DST) workshop practice to Turkey through a project called “Digital Stories from Amargi Women”, which was part of the author’s Ph.D. research in the Creative Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology, Australia. In the resulting dissertation, she examined the potential of Digital Storytelling workshop practice as a means to promote agency and self-expression in a feminist activist organization (such as Amargi Women), focusing in particular on whether or not Digital Storytelling can be used as a change agent – as a tool for challenging the idea of a single public sphere in ways that make it more inclusive of women’s participation.
