“When we listen deeply, and tell stories, we build a just and healthy world.”


A digital story is a first-person narrative that weaves together visual and auditory media—for instance, stock images, home video, illustrations, music, sound effects, and voiceover—in the form of a short video that can be shared widely. As a mode of artistic expression and theory-making, digital storytelling is based on the principle that we are all experts of our own lives. For most of us, this was our first time creating a digital story. They emerged from a place of intergenerational wisdom and lived experience. Using our own voices and those of our communities, we are forging counter-narratives to the dominant discourses of decline that surround aging, and pushing the boundaries of what is considered default in age studies.
