Cows and Fish works with partners across Alberta to find and share stories about the relationships between people, land and water. Stories from the field are about the connections riparian habitats make and the lives they touch.
We have worked with groups including the Centre for Digital Storytelling (www.storycenter.org) to continue to enhance our storytelling skills and engage audiences with meaningful messages. Digital storytelling is the art of using digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.
