In this workshop we will help you create a short digital story – your Baltimore story – that may be included on the Baltimore Stories website. Create a personal narrative that records your life experience and reflects your own thoughts about Baltimore communities. We will have a limited number of iPads available, or participants can use their own Apple device (iPhone or iPad). We will use Adobe Voice, which is available as a free download through the iTunes store.
