Joe Lambert
Center for Digital Story Telling
Board Member since 2014

In 1994, after a decade as a producer and director in theater, Joe and his colleagues opened a digital media center in San Francisco dedicated to storytelling. The focus was a unique computer training and arts program known as the Digital Storytelling Workshop. This process grew out of Joe's collaboration with Dana Atchley, whose solo theatrical multimedia work, Next Exit, combined images and video from a vast family archive, with a series of short deeply personal stories. Since then, Joe has traveled the world to spread the practice of digital storytelling and has authored and produced curricula in many contexts, including the Digital Storytelling Cookbook, the principle manual for the workshop process, and Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community, and most recently Seven Stages, Story and the Human Experience.
