StoryLab is an interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to increasing creativity, accessibility and transparency in storytelling, and demonstrating its transformational potential.
We interrogate and experiment with multimodal storytelling, immersive technology and diverse perspectives, to create original narrative experiences, and investigate their impact on individuals and society. Our research focuses on key areas of interest: Creative Practice; Identity, Culture & Heritage; Health & Wellbeing; and Environment & Climate Change.
StoryLab collaborates with a wide range of partners to explore new combinations of creative practice and technology, and advance understanding, cooperation, equality and wellbeing. Our work contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
