The StoryStorm Network Exchange - tickets selling fast!

Posted by on in News

The StoryStorm Network is a collaborative exchange of methods for storytelling in research led by Mel Woods (DJCAD, UoD) with Dr Debbie Maxwell (ECA), Daisy Abbott (GSA) and Dr Helen Graham (Leeds). Our next workshop is on June 5th...

This StoryStorm workshop will focus on stories about heritage research and the value, challenges, opportunities and questions raised when we tell stories about our past. The workshop will demonstrate and explore some of the innovative technological methodologies being used to tell heritage stories, allowing participants to map out their own use of digital storytelling methods, exchange knowledge and ideas, and identify some of the ongoing barriers to telling the stories that researchers want to tell. This final event of the StoryStorm Network will draw on previous work but also capture our needs as storytellers and researchers for future developments in this area.

StoryStorm is funded by the EPSRC Communities and Culture Network+. The workshop is free and lunch will be provided.

Who: This workshop will be of interest to anyone who is interested in the application of digital technology in heritage research or how people interact with stories about our past. This includes researchers in the heritage sector and in higher education, community groups or individuals working to tell heritage stories, and designers and technologists working within the heritage domain.

When: 5th June 2014, 10am – 4pm

Where: Digital Design Studio, Glasgow School of Art, The Hub, Pacific Quay, Glasgow.
