Multiple Voices – Inclusivity in Storytelling 2023
In the Multi-Voice Storytelling workshop, we go in search of your own ‘positionality’ with screenwriters, directors, producers, production designers, cameramen and everyone involved in making and/or shaping a film or AV project. During this three-day workshop, the questions of representation, diversity and inclusion that arise when making a film or AV project will be central, and we will look for the lens through which you look at the world. We do this on the basis of inspiring examples and case studies, but also on the basis of our own project. This can be a project in development, or an existing production in which you have encountered these questions.
The need for inclusive and diverse stories is great. But who tells them? And with and for whom? In the Multi-Voice Storytelling workshop we will work with tools and training to make ourselves aware of and look for our own ‘positionality’. Positionality originates from anthropology and is a way of investigating from which position we tell stories and how they relate to socially dominant and underrepresented stories. This training focuses on the way in which personal context and substantive content reinforce, enrich and challenge each other in each project.
Multi-Voice Storytelling is for everyone involved in telling, designing, making and showing film and audiovisual productions. From screenwriters, script coaches and directors, to producers, distributors and screeners and everyone from the visual team from production designers to cameramen.
The workshop is led by Winnie Roseval (diversity & inclusion consultant and researcher at the Inclusive Education research group, The Hague University of Applied Sciences).
