We will share short digital narratives that inspire us to think more inclusively about our work in two educational sectors—higher education and non-profit arts education where we work on issues related to peace, human rights, social justice and environmental sustainability. Purpose: Share a peacebuilding framework, contemplative practices and storytelling exercises for being and becoming the digital citizens needed to build community and coalitions for more just, sustainable and joyful futures. Objectives: (1) introduce participants to the moral imagination as a framework that embraces multiple ways of knowing and being (2) explore digital citizenship through the lens of the moral imagination (3) build community through storytelling exercises and spirited dialogue. Impact: Shift participants’ paradigms—and practices—from digital media consumers to curators and publishers; model reflective inquiry and collaboration; provide an opportunity to contribute to a post-conference publication. Partners: We will invite workshop participants to partner with one another and with us to create a post-conference publication, building on our lived experience as digital citizens.
