How is technology changing the way we tell stories? Next meeting: Friday 7 June, 2-3pm.

Frank Rose, The Art of Immersion
"Not long ago we were spectators, passive consumers of mass media. Now, on YouTube and blogs and Facebook and Twitter, we are media. What we're witnessing is the emergence of a new form of narrative that’s native to the Internet. Told through many media at once in a nonlinear fashion, these new narratives en­courage us not merely to watch but to participate, often engaging us in the same way that games do."  - Frank Rose, The Art of Immersion (2011)
How can researchers harness digital storytelling platforms to engage audiences, communicate new knowledge and promote social change? Can opportunities for co-creation empower communities to tell their own stories?

At our next meeting, Paul Houghton, Digital Strategist at Emergent Form, will lead a discussion on digital storytelling and provide an overview of several projects he has been working on with his team.

The session will run between 2-3pm in Arts 1.33 on Friday 7 June.

In preparation for the session, please take some time to explore the websites below:
