Digital Storytelling Artist in Residence at Right Turn
PIERRE, S.D. – Poet, editor and performance artist Lawrence Diggs conducted a workshop at Right Turn in Pierre as part of the South Dakota Arts Council’s Artists In Schools & Communities program. The artist worked with Right Turn students, staff and alumni during the residency from September 17-28.
Students spent about 24 hours spread over 8 days to learn how to create original short films. The students showcased their work at a free film festival on Friday, September 28.
Diggs is the designer and editor of the South Dakota State Poetry Society’s annual chapbook, Four Quarters to a Section, available at Amazon.com and other bookstores. He has made a living in radio, television and public performance for longer than 40 years.
The Right Turn, Inc., is a United Way Participating Agency. Their purpose is to strengthen the local workforce by promoting economic success through education and job training. They provide GED classes, computer skills training, English language instruction and citizenship classes along with training and technical assistance to child-care providers in several rural counties including the Crow Creek, Lower Brule, and Rosebud Indian Reservations.
The digital storytelling program was made possible by the South Dakota Arts Council with funds from the State of South Dakota, through the Department of Tourism and State Development, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
