Digital Story Showcase Spotlight

The Power of Knowledge Digital Storytelling Submission Guidelines

The CSUSM University Library is pleased to host its first digital storytelling event featuring the work of our CSUSM students, faculty and staff. Videos are based on the theme “power of knowledge”, which centers on our 2019/20 campus common read Educated: A Memoir by Dr. Tara Westover. Check back to this site for information on how to get your free admission ticket to the March 5th Digital Storytelling Showcase. This event is leading up to our big Arts & Lectures event on April 28th where we welcome Dr. Westover to campus. Tickets for that event will be available soon as part of the Arts & Lectures series.
