►a'21: How to build a world. (Storytelling in digital environments) _ADEF
The Arab Digital Expression Foundation (ADEF), through its core team and rich web of affiliates, creates and documents models of collaboration to design activities and projects which build on technology in order to develop self-expression, knowledge dissemination and production of thought. In its new iterations, ADEF engages with and supports Arab collectives, initiatives and groups to embark on projects that creatively capitalize on digital technology for the production of free and open knowledge and the promotion of artistic expression.
:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN / AR) ::
This panel aims at reflecting collectively on the transformative power of storytelling by improving the collaboration between the colliding worlds of journalism and creative tech.
The conversation digital artists, writers, producers, designers, journalists and targets researchers, as well as anyone interested in learning, discussing and developing a critical understanding of the intersections between media production and technology. We ask how to facilitate an integrated development of journalistic content presented in multiple formats through different expressions of creative tech. ADEF Berlin team (Laura Cugusi, Milad Amin) and Egyptian architect and digital artist Mostafa El Baroodi discuss the challenges and opportunities of creative tools: from immersive to interactive experiences, from VR / AR, gaming environments to interactive, and participatory content.
