Everyone is a storyteller! Just one week away from the big Open Brain Party of OKFestival. We need all the storytelling help you can muster. Trust us, from photos to videos to art to blogs to tweets – share away.
The Storytelling team is a community-driven project. We will work with all participants to decide which tasks are possible and which stories they want to cover. We remix together.
We’ve written up this summary of how to Storytell, some story ideas and suggested formats.
There are a few ways to join:
- AT the Event: We will host an in person meetup on Tuesday, July 15th to plan at the Science Fair. Watch #okstory for details. Look for the folks with blue ribbons.
- Digital Participants: Join in and add all your content with the #okfest14 @heatherleson #OKStory tags.
- Share: Use the #okstory hashtag. Drop a line to heather.leson AT okfn dot org to get connected.
We highlighted some ways to storytell in this brief 20 minute chat:
