Everyone has a story to tell.


Would you like to tell your story? The Storytelling Project is listening!

Tell your story with us in our Over the Wires project. While we can't come to you physically this year, we would love for you to send us a recording of yourself telling your story. The video submissions will be turned into short (30 second) social media clips and featured on GCDD and L’Arche Atlanta’s social media channels!

Here’s how to do a story recording ‘over the wires’:

1. Find the quietest place around where you live and sit with the sun or light facing you so we can see you clearly.
2. Set up your computer or phone (horizontally) to record yourself. If someone else is holding the phone for you, have them stand within 3 feet of you so we can hear you.
3. You can talk, draw or make other art, sing, beat box, sign, play music, or communicate in your preferred way.
4. Pick as many questions from below you’d like to answer and record yourself answering each question within 10-30 seconds.
5. Upload the recording here.

If you would like someone from the Storytelling Project to accompany through the process, send us an email at ddstorytellingga@gmail.com, we’re here to help!
