3Cmedia: Journal of Community, Citizen’s and Third Sector Media

  Making Links through Digital Storytelling

Issue 5 (October) 2009



This issue of the Journal of Community, Citizen’s and Third Sector  
Media and Communication (3CMedia) provides important insights into how  
a particular form of community-based digital media practice is being  
used in a variety of contexts to facilitate social participation  
through storytelling and creative expression. Papers are based on  
selected presentations given at the 5th annual Making Links  
conference, held at The University of Melbourne from 11th to 13th  
November, 2008.

Aneta Podkalicka and Jonathan Staley report on the development,  
operation and management of a youth media program, YouthWorx Media and  
how digital storytelling is being used in conjunction with community  
radio to engage disadvantaged young people.

Peta-Marie Standley and her colleagues introduce The Traditional  
Knowledge Revival Pathways (TKRP), an Indigenous-owned community,  
training and environmental consultancy, that uses new media tools  
including digital storytelling techniques to reconnect people to place  
and to demonstrate the value of the ancient Indigenous knowledge  
system in providing solutions to issues of contemporary concern.

Natalie Davey and Samia Goudie report on the Hope Vale – Pelican  
project. This partnership between the Elders of Hope Vale, and Pelican  
Expeditions, a marine research and education service provider aims to  
promote social and emotional wellbeing and caring for country. In 2007  
and 2008 a digital storytelling media camp was embedded into the  
project and extraordinary stories were produced.

Throughout 2009 the State Library of Queensland (SLQ) collaborated  
with individuals and Indigenous communities across Queensland in an  
initiative that used digital storytelling to capture responses to the  
Apology made by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. Jean Burgess and Helen  
Klaebe report on the collaborative process used to capture responses  
from Brisbane-based individuals.

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image is one of the few cultural  
institutions of its kind worldwide. Helen Simondson charts the  
development of the Digital Storytelling program at ACMI.

the journal is free of charge. Contributions covering a wide range of
