Interactive Pasts workshop
Jointly organized by VALUE, Archon and the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), this two-day workshop in Leiden will explore the potential of creating and telling interactive (hi-)stories. By bringing archaeology and video games together, the workshop will use the open-source programme Twine in order to encourage creative experimentation and develop interactive storytelling skills. It will bring together scholars and students from archaeology, history, heritage and museum studies with game developers and narrative designers. The workshop will be set up so as to allow for both in-depth treatment of the topic of interactive narratives in the form of presentations by a number of key experts, as well as creative workshop sessions, open discussion, skill development and the establishment of new ties between academia and the creative industry. The workshop can accommodate 50 participants.
