About “disLAB Presents…”

“disLAB presents” is a series of free encounters organized by the digital and interactive storytelling LAB – a new MA due to open @Harrow in September 2017.

If you are interested in digital journalism, interactive documentary, apps for social change, educational video games or just digital communication, this series of encounters is for you. The aim is to invite students and young media makers to join the conversation with practitioners, so that together we can start creating the digital stories of the future.

disLAB challenges the use of digital media to do exciting storytelling. It is about being creative and becoming the storytellers of the future. For this, it is important to be exposed to current practices, be inspired by great makers and dare to innovate ourselves.

By inviting successful digital storytellers to share their current projects and expertise in an informal setting, we hope to bridge the gap between industry and universities. Let’s start our future now.
