This interactive presentation is designed to engage you in the storymaking process. The hosts are local composer and screenwriter Paul Donnet, and artist in residence Rickie Lea Owens, who joins us from Montréal. Paul will show you how every story has a beginning, middle and end. Rickie Lea will demonstrate the simplest form of digital storymaking. She will animate the audience in a group GIF!

Then, Paul and Rickie Lea will introduce you to other artists involved in the DIY movement. Vincent VanHaff, of and Vancouver Mini Maker Faire will share his latest work. Aili Meutzner will talk about Girls Rock Camp, which gives young women the opportunity to explore, access and play music with positive mentors. Aili will be joined by Adrienne LaBelle, director of the Safe Amp Site Society, a nonprofit collective dedicated to creating a venue for people of all ages. We will end with a break-out session in which students use flip cameras or their phones to create a visual story.
