About StoryCenter
StoryCenter had its beginnings in 1993, when its founders discovered that people with little or no prior experience in multimedia could create powerful personal stories using the new digital media technology. Initially known as the San Francisco Digital Media Center, it refined a curriculum that became the basis for a community workshop called “digital storytelling." In 1998, the center moved to Berkeley and became the Center for Digital Storytelling, and in 2015, the organization became, simply, StoryCenter. StoryCenter has worked with nearly a thousand organizations around the world and trained more than fifteen thousand people in hundreds of workshops to share stories from their lives.
