Media, archives, storytelling

Do media need archives? What has storytelling to do with archive materials?

Stories holded on archive sources. Archive sources could be included into media narratives on a attractive way, e.g. using storytelling.

There are at least two reasons for it. The stories become "second life" and media don't have to construct content which can be useful and interesting for its audience. They can use ready sources.

These questions were the issuu of the conference and workshop "Learn - Do - Share", on June, 24, 2015, in Warsaw. Read some insights of it.

Mechanism of discrimination in short looks like this. / Mechanizm dyskryminacji w skrócie wygląda tak:

Space to grow

Why growth is so important?

Lack of growth leads to stagnation. Obsession of innovation is the other extreme.

On June, 11 (2015) I participated on lectures dedicated to growth and space to growth within an independent Ted event. The event had a title "Space to grow".

I especially enjoyed the lectures of Magdalena Kozłowska-Deć, Hoang Minh Ngo and Dawid Sokołowski.
