Abstract / Summary

This book chapter emerges from a collaborative project that was funded by the AHRC as part of the AHRC/BBC Knowledge Exchange Pilot Scheme. It was a collaboration between the University of Glamorgan and BBC Wales, on which the authors of this chapter were Principal and Co-Investigators respectively.

This chapter, which draws upon the published project report and updates its thinking in the light of further research activity around digital storytelling and the development of the practice, is jointly authored, with each author making an equal contribution., The chapter is also part of a much wider slew of work on the changing nature of storytelling in the digital age, which Wilson has been carrying out over the past six years at both Glamorgan and Falmouth. Building on his earlier monographs on storytelling (1998 and 2005) and other writing, he has explored the evolving theory and practice of digital storytelling principally from a storytelling perspective (as opposed to most scholarship in this field which approaches the subject through media and technology perspectives) through a series of externally funded projects. These include: ‘TaleEnders’ (AHRC-funded Knowledge Catalyst in partnership with Glamorgan Cricket Club, exploring digital narratives of sporting heritage by local cricket clubs); ‘Taking the Field’ (AHRC-funded KTP with Marylebone Cricket Club - cf www.takingthefield.com); ‘Who Do You Think I Am?’ (Welsh Government and BT in collaboration with Cardiff YMCA, using digital storytelling to challenge preconceptions around homelessness); ‘ASPECT’ (AHRC-funded project in partnership with White Loop Media and Department of Energy and Climate Change, exploring the use of technology-enhanced narratives to increase public engagement through the reframing of the climate change debate – www.projectaspect.org); and ‘Creative Practice as Mutual Recovery’ (AHRC Connected Communities Large Grant in partnership with the University of Nottingham and others, looking at arts interventions in the field of mental health recovery.
