Transmedia Storytelling for Good Speaker Series | Wednesday, April 23 @ 6pm

Printer-friendly version

Transmedia storytelling is an immersive approach told on multiple media platforms, with different parts of the story appearing in different places. The audience/participants can get to know the characters and their world from many different angles, often in real time.

While the transmedia approach has been more often used by big-budget film and television productions, or large marketing campaigns, nonprofits and other socially oriented organizations are successfully building on the power of immersive narrative to get their stories across in an engaging way to spark action.

This event will explore how transmedia storytelling is being used to engage and educate Latino youth in reproductive health issues and is geared toward those working on health, social, environmental and educational issues, whether through nonprofits, public agencies, universities or other groups that want to change the world for the better.
