Networked Digital Storytelling
Call for Course Participation

Time: November 6, 2006 ? January 18, 2007 - 15 ECTS points

Networked Digital Storytelling is a course that critically explores the
artistic possibilities of new networked media such as videoblogs, social
media, mashups and locative media. Participants in the course use these
technologies in a series of workshops built around the theme of
mediating and telling stories about the city.

During the workshops there will be guest lectures by artists, social
media workers, bloggers, and theorists. Regular teachers are Kristoffer
Gansing, PhD student specialising in alternative media, and Tina
Giannopoulos, cultural producer and architect. 
The course ends in a common presentation in the form of an exhibition,
installation or urban intervention.
