Stories X Future is a project start by Garage Stories in 2018 to explore the potential of emerging media for good. In 2019 we joined forces with the NYC based "Overview Collective" to create a space for creators and experts to work together to decode scientific knowledge and build impactful solutions to foster climate solutions, social justice, etc.
Participants can join with a pre-established team or as an individual, and can join the matchmaking process to find other participants to join your project as necessary. The 5 week program includes:
- Bi-weekly live working sessions with industry experts to inspire and sharpen skills, methodological tools to support project design, access to a network of XR, sustainability and innovation industry experts and connection to a network of international creators to join forces with.
