Ancient storytellers captured narrative in paintings on cave walls or sustained them through the oral tradition. But modern technology has significantly enhanced the way in which our stories are told, collected, shared, and measured.
We want to highlight the advancements that the digital and technological landscape has brought to the art of storytelling, while also recognizing the importance of strong narrative.
Enter StoriesLab, a half-day interactive exploration into the possibilities of story to entertain, inform connect, and engage. We’ll look at transmedia storytelling as a tool of engagement. We’ll participate in a mini story hackathon. We’ll engage in a workshop on measuring impact for cross media projects. And we’ll be reminded about the power of narrative.
