Digital Storytelling Project: Using Narrative and Participatory Media to Explore GBV in SA

Telling Digital Stories

Sonke, in collaboration with Silence Speaks and the Center for Digital Storytelling, have produced a case study document on the use of digital storytelling to explore the links between gender, violence, and HIV and AIDS in South Africa.

As Sonke continues to share the collection of digital stories in the context of its training and advocacy efforts, our hope is to build in additional research strategies that can explore the impact the stories are having on viewers, with the goal of demonstrating that these moving personal narratives can provide critical information and prompt action for community and policy change to confront gender-based violence and prevent and address HIV and AIDS in Southern Africa.
