StoryLab Research Institute
Storytelling is a powerful tool for interpretation, understanding and change. StoryLab’s interdisciplinary research is concerned with the WHAT, HOW, WHO and WHY of storytelling operating at the intersection of narrative, form and function. Its core research question is: how can purposeful storytelling effect meaningful social and cultural change? As such the Lab explores how the development and democratisation of existing and emerging creative technologies can enable stories to be told in innovative and immersive ways, and impact positively on society.
The Lab adopts an experiential and interactive approach to storytelling that includes 360 film, 3D data visualisation, soundscapes, extended realities as well as traditional filmmaking. Multimodal narratives are a common theme, with novel combinations of art and design, audio, digital media and film, to support investigation, intervention, and knowledge exchange.
The lab works with a variety of researchers and organisations to develop creative artefacts, new data, innovative and poly-vocal forms of inquiry and communication of knowledge particularly around complex and challenging issues - specifically:
- Human Creativity, Design and Technology
- Identity, Culture and Heritage
- Sustainable and Resilient Communities
- Health and Wellbeing
