How has storytelling helped our understanding of the COVID-19 pandemic? This workshop examines the different mediums used in storytelling, and how they have served to educate on the science of COVID-19, encourage preventative practices, and give a snapshot of the daily lives of individuals in this point in history.

Objectives:

  • Understand how storytelling is used to convey difficult topics, and the different mediums used (audio, animation, comics, social media, video).
  • Discuss examples of storytelling during the pandemic, and their importance.
  • Complete a mini-exercise on creating a 4-panel comic. You will need a pen and paper for this exercise.

This workshop will be led by Farah Hamade, UCSF Library's current Artist in Residence. To learn more about the Artist in Residence program, visit the UCSF Library website.

This workshop is open to the UCSF community and will be held via Zoom. Attendees will receive the Zoom link and password after registering on the UCSF Library Events Calendar.
