Telling Your Story - Showing and Sharing Your Work

  1. 1. Telling Your Story: Showing & Sharing Your “Work Out Loud” on Social Media Craft Victoria: September 2016 Helen Blunden @ActivateLearn
  2. 2. Who was your inspiration on your craft and how?
  3. 3. Who Am I? Frustrated corporate cubicle worker who discovered that the secret of building network & community was within her social knitting groups. Her life has never been the same because they shared…the secret...
  4. 4. “A lot of people are so used to just seeing the outcome of work. They never see the side of the work you go through to produce the outcome.” —Michael Jackson
  5. 5. Share our craft stories to our networks & communities
  6. 6. How? By Working Out Loud • Make the process of your craft (& thinking) visible in such a way that it inspires and helps others… • Build relationships with others • Be generous with your experience, stories & knowledge but also accept generosity (ask questions/seek input/encourage ideas to be shared) • Make the process of your work & your thinking visible (ask questions; seek feedback; engage your community) • Discover new things that will help you & others (& openly share, like and respond) • Be actively learning, open and curious through your craft (what if/how so/why not?) Reference: John Stepper, Working Out Loud
  7. 7. Me myself and my knitting….
  8. 8. Ref: Carla Linkous Max Gallery - How Did I Find the Secret?
  9. 9. Should I go in or not? Who ARE these people?
  10. 10. How can you make a start to share your work out loud?
  11. 11. On your selected social media (wherever your community is): - Share what you want to create and why? What’s the problem you’re trying to solve? - Explain your thoughts, questions, issues, concerns, ideas, opportunities, excitement! - Explain what tools, equipment,resources, you may need - why, what, when, how? - Who can help you? - Share each step of the way: the good and the bad - The outcome & Reflection of Learning = Community Building
