Workshop Date: 3 March

The concept of the workshop will be focused on understanding transmedia and its application in visual storytelling practice, working towards developing creative narratives across different platforms and how to connect it with international networks.

The workshop is aimed at professional visual storytellers who are working on mid to long term projects and wishing to engage with various visual creative mediums like photography, video, archives and documents in order to narrate stories. During the workshop, traditional narratives as well as newly emerging digital languages and platforms will be discussed as possible tools of creation and audience engagement.
