Connected Stories Course

Connected Stories

Connected Stories

1st April – 3rd April 2014

Working in partnership with Creative Skillset, thinkARK, Hoffi, Cyfle, PlayThisNext, Winged Monkeys we are running a course that explores how stories can be told and connected through multiple media.

Connected Stories is a three day workshop event that will be an opportunity for individuals from different disciplines and methodologies to come together to learn, develop and explore what the narrative possibilities are within multiplatform storytelling. During the three days the participants will be taken through a process that will open discussion on transmedia with examples of best practice and lessons learned from leading industry professionals, in addition to inspirational sessions that explore and analyse successful case studies. The programme will also offer important opportunities to connect with others from different work practices to form the beginnings of new and exciting networks.

This short course is intended as an introduction to the world of transmedia and focuses on the idea of knowledge exchange, open experimentation and collaboration between practitioners of different media.

Course speakers include:

Alison Norrington

Kim Plowright

Ben Grass

Emma Foster

Peter Cowley

The course will take place Cardiff Bay (Suite 6, Second Floor, 33 – 35 West Bute Street, CF10 5LH) and there are bursaries available for travel and accommodation for those who are not based within a 55 mile radius of the Cardiff area.
