In May 2010, Nurstory conducted a workshop at the University of Colorado with the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN), known worldwide for its focus on caring and reflective practice. Sue Hagedorn and Vicki Erickson from the University, in conjunction with recruitment from IAFN, brought together nurses from around the country for the workshop, which was facilitated by Daniel Weinshenker and Mary Ann McNair from StoryCenter.
Filmmaker Sue Hagedorn captured the entire workshop on video and then edited a short-form documentary out of the footage and various video interviews with the storytellers. The result is one of the first documentaries highlighting the work of StoryCenter, with an emphasis on the intricacies of what happens during the digital storytelling workshop process rather than on the end-products created in the workshop.
