Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper we consider the role of digital storytelling for creative empowerment of marginalized youth, through a three-year program of workshops conducted in the context of Palestinian refugee camps in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
We highlight the current situation regarding arts education and cultural production, and the challenging environment experienced by the youth there. We then describe the Voices Beyond Walls program and key lessons learned to suggest novel tools and practices that may support broader adoption of digital storytelling programs for marginalized youth in diverse global settings.
