Summer 2018 Interactive Storytelling Program
Interactive storytelling allows the audience to play a part in the story-making process. Whether viewing the world through a virtual reality, or shaping it with your fingers, interactive storytelling is cool to build and share with others.
Projects incorporate elements from all kinds of backgrounds: sound and music, graphic design, film, screenwriting, acting, photography and a bit of science and math background - since we are working with technology. The themes of the projects range from the Regent Park community to the city at large.
The goal of the program is for everyone to get to know each other better, learn new skills and be inspired!
