Social Impact through Digital Storytelling with Matt Scott

Summary & Key takeaways

How do you change the world through digital story-telling? While story-telling is as old as humanity itself, the job title Digital Story-teller wasn’t even invented until a few years ago. Is digital storytelling just a fancy word for marking, or is it a more authentic form of engagement and how can use the process to advance positive social change? What are the key skills and careers paths for those who want to work at the intersection of technology, media and stories?

In Episode 10 of Season 6, Matt Scott shares about how built a career as a digital storyteller.

Matt has been fascinated by the role of narrative in driving global impact, stemming from his previous work in the sexual assault advocacy space. For the past five years, he has been involved in multiple social media for social change initiatives with some of the leading organizations in the world.

Matt is also the creator of 180 of Impact a storytelling project to reverse engineer social change through conversations with 180 change makers and social entrepreneurs worldwide.
