Event description
Hello Culture Remix: Telling Tales explores how we can retell stories in multiple narrative formats, platforms and in a myriad of ways.

About this Event

Telling tales has never been so exciting and the future cultural experience so fragmented. The art of the narrative is no longer a linear experience as immersive technologies create new forms of content and augment traditional cultural output.In addition, diversity, representation and self-identification are subverting traditional narratives and in turn challenging cultural production and distribution as audiences engage with a plurality of cultural voices through multiple platforms.With audiences choosing how, where and when they engage with stories, the augmenting of traditional modes of cultural production creates new and exciting opportunities for artists and cultural organisations.

Wednesday February 26, 2020, 09:30-17:00, The Landing, MediaCityUK, Manchester

Once Upon a time.. there was a beginning, middle and end. Now the story and the narrative are no longer linear experiences to be passively consumed as digital technologies disrupt the nature of the cultural experience.The end is the beginning, the beginning is the end and the middle connects multiple narratives across multiple platforms.

Telling Tales will explore how by embodying the cultural voice through diverse artistic practices, narrative perspectives and multiple platforms we can create cultural spaces for audiences to experience art in new ways and see themselves reflected.
