Santa Monica Library Hosts History Visible

The Center for Digital Storytelling and Vidiots will present “History Visible: Storywork in Art, Performance and Digital Media” at the Santa Monica Main Library on Thursday, January 26th from 7-9pm.

Berkeley-based Center for Digital Storytelling (CDS) founder Joe Lambert will appear on a panel with Judy Baca, founder of Social Public Art Resource Center (SPARC), and John Malpede, founder of Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD), in a discussion about “History Visible: The Practice of Applying Digital Storytelling in Art, Performance, and Community Building.”

Special digital storytelling screenings will be followed by presentations and a panel discussion. Moderating the panel will be Christian Bordal, preeminent producer of the PRI radio show, “To The Point,” hosted by Warren Olney, as well as “Which Way L.A.?,” a KCRW feature news show.

Bordal will lead a discussion about the importance of community-based arts projects, including the empowering practice of building a community narrative through various media, from the paintbrush to the iPhone.

Aside from illuminating the exemplary work of the three panelists, the event is intended to launch a re-vitalized presence for the Center for Digital Storytelling in Los Angeles. CDS provides a broad range of training, media production, and consulting services for projects with non-profit and civic organizations in education, social services, public health, environment and human rights. The Center also serves the individual storyteller and has trained artists and organizations in the practice both locally and worldwide

The event is  free to the public.
