Innovative storytelling to achieve civic awareness in the post-digital age.
WeTell Summer School is about innovating storytelling to address civic awareness in the post-digital age.
Do you believe your ideas have potential but you don’t know how to communicate them and capitalize on them?
Would you like to discover the potentialities of storytelling as an empowering tool?
Do you think you could bring a contribution to the community with your passions, your dreams and your visions?
WeTell Summer School focuses on the art and practice of performative storytelling. Its aim is to promote civic awareness among European and International students living in a hyper-technological but unequal environment.
WeTell Summer School will take place in Bologna from 1 to 12 July 2019.
The media environment is not a neutral environment, nor is it equally accessible.
Media as environment shape our views, our opinions and us.
At WeTell Summer School you will investigate the newly born idea of “post-digital era”, as well as its various media.
You will re-discover and re-evaluate traditional technologies in relation to the new digital ones because new media do not replace old media: they complicate each other.
Performative Storytelling Summer School develops along a route that started with Responsibility (2018 edition), will focus on Dissent in the edition of 2019 to conclude with Vulnerability in 2020. Dissent will be explored in a variety of facets, with a focus on its ethical dilemmas and implications.
We will learn to experience, conceptualize, express and mediate awareness of people and environments through seminars, workshops, city activities, fieldwork and more. We will also work together to the practical realization of pro-active experiences of performative storytelling to enhance civic awareness together with professionals and experts from a variety of fields.
All information about the edition of 2019, its organization and programme and how to apply are available here.
