Storymaking in sustainable energy systems research: invoking “a sense of energy” through multimodal techniques and exhibitions
Ian Bradley and Sue Potts
‘Our Day Out’ seeks to capture the essence of a family day out. Drawing inspiration from a selection of images from the Keith Medley Photographic Archive, at Liverpool John Moores University.
Our Day Out is keen for contributions from across the region to help build a rich archive of stories and memories from the mid 1960s and beyond. If you have a story to tell we would like to hear from you.
We will also be running a series of workshops which will see the creation of post card memories that will add voice to the collection. Contributions to the workshops will form part of an planned exhibition.
The Memory Store
Set in the future in Liverpool this narrative is organised and orchestrated through a website, The Memory Store – http://thememorystore.org/
In the fictional world the store is an archive of users memories captured directly from an implanted chip, freeing users from having to remember for themselves. This facility also enables users to exchange their memories with the crowd. Do they remember events as others do? How verifiable are their memories? Whose versions of events are most credible?
Participants are invited to contribute fictional memories of events they are led to imagine happening in 2115. In this way they add to the narrative and collectively build a picture of Liverpool in a hundred years time.
A central character, Jules Stewart, orchestrates the content submitted through her role as a pattern surveillance officer, who is looking for a missing person.
The work of Leeds International Women’s Filmmaking
Our Here! An Interactive Documentary Workshop from the Leeds International Women’s Filmmaking Collective
The Leeds International Women’s Filmmaking Collective was set up in March 2015 by multimedia artist Kelly Zarins as part of her practice-based research at Leeds Trinity University. The collective generates media collaboratively through workshops which bring together a community of women who have migrated to Leeds for study and work. The collective explore the use of online platforms and open documentary forms to establish a living archive to chronicle their experiences and lives in Leeds.
Browse and explore the online home of the collective via their website. From here you can follow their stories as they evolve across multiple platforms and formats. Interact with our production journey on Yarn, watch our short films on Vimeo, and listen to our conversations on SoundCloud.
