Digital Storytelling Project
Centering Community Voices
In collaboration with our Navajo community health partners, we hosted a 3-day “Digital Storytelling Workshop”, in which Navajo community members were invited to tell their stories about living with RA. Participants in the workshop each created their own short video exploring their personal journey with RA, and explaining what they wish others would understand about RA. These videos have been used as conversation starters at a series of round-table discussions (called “Rez Cafes”) at local Navajo chapter houses, to explore community members’ beliefs and questions about arthritis. Many thanks to all the strong women who shared their stories.
