Call: Expanded Narrative Symposium

Expanded Narrative Symposium
Roland Levinsky Building
Plymouth University
Fri 1st – Sat 2nd November 2013

Early Bird tickets available until end of September!

The Expanded Narrative Symposium explores the multidisciplinary fields of interactive narrative that reconfigure the form and expand the experience of storytelling.

The reader, relocated, becomes a player, co-author or participant. How can we design, develop and experience locative sound, participatory theatre, pervasive and mobile games, flash fiction and works yet to be defined? Through the consideration of these questions, the symposium aims to promote knowledge exchange and collaboration between practitioners from the arts, academia and the creative industries.

The symposium’s interconnected themes of story, sound, performance, games and space reflect the interdisciplinary nature of Expanded Narrative, examined by leading names. Confirmed speakers include Nick Ryan, Jo Reid, Tassos Stevens, Seth Kriebel, David Prior, Lytton Smith, Chris Speed, Michael Straeubig, James Brocklehurst, Misha Myers, Julia Moszkowicz, Adam Barton and Jane Grant.
