We are an international community of media makers, technologists and designers interested in innovative forms of storytelling.
Humans have been storytellers since we first gathered around the campfire. As our media has developed through the ages, the way we tell stories has evolved. The web enables stories to be interactive, dynamic and participatory, empowering experiences previously left untold.
We are 900+ strong on Slack, hailing from different timezones, skillsets and professional backgrounds. We love sharing: from upcoming events to projects we're working on and from useful tools to exciting opportunities.
We partner with organisations to explore the future of storytelling in quick, practical, multi-disciplinary sprints. We call these events 'Hack Jams': they mix story, code and creativity with fun and community. Hack Jams bring together teams, combining different skills to create innovative story prototypes that are born on the web.
Also check out our Community Calendar with events from the worlds of innovative storytelling, future media, web documentary, object based broadcasting, data-driven narrative, immersive journalism & more...
Story Jam: New Neighbours
On 19-21 September Storytellers United organises Story Jam: New Neighbours, in cooperation with Sound & Vision and the Nederlands Film Festival. During three days, participants work together in multidisciplinary teams under the guidance of coaches on new intercultural story prototypes.
Over the course of one week we will investigate the value hidden in film archives and explore new ways of surfacing stories that have never been told before. During the Lab, a select group of participants gets exclusive access to try the interactive online video installation Untold Stories and help steer functionality and design.
