#TrendingStories: A Media/E-Publishing Sector Workshop
23rd May 2014 at FACT Liverpool
Number of Participants: 38 (including facilitators). 36 UK, 1 Australia, 1 Italy.
Stories form identities; identities form persons. Every story that we tell, as individuals and collectives, reflects the society that we live in. Personal broadcast is a seemingly unstoppable trend which is shaping contemporary life, but what does it mean for our identities? From selfies to hashtags, and with countless platforms such as Instagram and Twitter, whether you are active on social media or not, the way stories are told has changed.
#TrendingStories seeked to involve media creators and publishers who currently use ICT tools in their everyday creative practices, and to engage them in a collective dialogue with ICT researchers and developers. Inspired by provocations from leading philosophers, transmedia storytellers and artists, participants were invited to explore the technological impacts of personal broadcast, establish the relationship between identity and storytelling, question and visualise what the future is for media and publishing, both personal and professional.Read the full report Join the discussions!
