STORIES FOR CHANGE

MEXICO <> GUATEMALA <> COSTA RICA

PANAMA <> COLOMBIA

2018

With the aim to bridge the tech and creative industries, both ways, and foster the early adoption of new technologies, we are going to bring together a group of Filmmakers, Storytellers and Developers to prototype disruptive ideas in Mexico, Panama and Colombia through innovation and storytelling.

Following design thinking techniques participants (filmmakers, designers, storytellers, artists, developers, gamers, etc) will work in multidisciplinary teams of 5 to re-think local challenges (tourism, education, entertainment, mobility, etc) and propose innovative solutions with emphasis on content and storytelling.

 

The experiences will be showcased at a local open doors event where attendees will be able to experience first hand their ideas, and all the ideas generated will be collected and displayed at our digital gallery of "Entertainment & Innovation".

WhiteWall

White wall is a kit of extended realities with content from museums around the world with the possibility of individual or massive reproduction.

This project solves the time-space restriction space-time between users and galleries and democratizes the access to culture. It also helps reduce the digital and cultural gap and supports cultural diffusion as well as dedicates some of the incomes to preserve historical ruins and monuments (heritage preservation).

BitBooks

BitBooks are interactive pieces of AR content that through storytelling foster experimental learning amongst students.

Each BitBook contains a short story that, in the shape of a story, invites students to join exciting expeditions, adventures, etc, to learn about different subjects such as Geography, History or even Maths!

The best part is that by pairs, or groups, students receive a different piece of content so afterwards they must interact between themselves so as to share what they've learn with each piece of content.

The team was invited to present their project at TedXGuatemalaCity -> video coming soon.
