StoryLab is an interdisciplinary research institute that explores immersive storytelling to enable diverse voices and perspectives. We champion purposeful and powerful storytelling that examines Narrative, Form & Function.
We combine traditional storytelling methods with emerging formats and creative technologies such as XR (VR, AR, MR), 360 film, soundscapes, 3D data visualisation to create powerful experiences to affect change. As a Lab we focus on speculative, participatory and agile design to create highly relevant responses to the real world environment.
Our creative practice research focusses on key areas of interest that align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals: Identity, Culture & Heritage, Health & Wellbeing, and Sustainable & Resilient Communities.
- Job opportunities at StoryLab! We’re recruiting a Narrative Designer (Archive and Immersive XR) and an ARHC funded Research Fellow.
- Upcoming event From VFX to Directing: Challenges and Opportunities to be rescheduled.
- The Golden Window won an AHRC Research in Film Award 2019. You can listen to the BBC podcast from the award ceremony in which Shreepali Patel and Prof. Topun Austin talks about the project from 6:20 – 12:50 minutes.
