Participatory Academy 2008

The 5th international workshop on cross media and collaboration will be held in Växjö, Sweden 12-14th of September 2008.

Participatory Academy is a forum for all media professionals, teachers and researchers engaged in collaborative methods and techniques for media production and digital storytelling. It’s a meeting point for those who want to improve their skills, develop new ideas and get inspired by eminent colleagues from many countries.

This year’s theme, “a world of stories”, will give participants a new toolbox for using digital stories in their programs or lessons. The workshop will be built up step by step with a mix of inspiring lectures and hands-on working sessions. As always at Participatory Academy a team of young people will interact with the professionals in the creative process. 
For the 5th time since 2003 the  Interactive Institute and Swedish Television, in cooperation with Växjö University, Prix Europa, EBU and other Nordic partners invites practitioners and researchers to a creative weekend in Växjö on cross media. Approximately 100 people from the whole of Europe have participated each year – attending lectures, contributing with their ideas in working sessions, exchanging experiences and having a good time while building a professional network for the future.
