Digital Storytelling

Express Your Mission is focused on digital storytelling — the idea that art, history and culture can be expressed very effectively online through a curated mix of electronic media.

For example, say a community wants to honor the accomplishments of a local resident through a digital story designed to teach future generations. A well written article enhanced with one or two images would suffice, but might not be compelling to a younger audience that is used to consuming media through YouTube and Facebook. Express your Mission’s approach would be to help community members who were touched by this person compile images, scans of newspaper articles, video clips, books and audio interviews and present these together in one collection that tells a much deeper, interactive story.

Every community has stories to tell. Making these stories easy to comprehend and accessible on smartphones, tablets and computers is the purpose of Express Your Mission.
