SECRET STORY NETWORK
Secret Story Network is a partnership between interactive story experts, academics, TV writers, producers, directors, app builders and audiences. The stories are delivered into a storyworld that you (as an audience member) help create and expand, centred around your favourite TV show. The stories take place on smartphones and tablets in chat environments like WhatsApp and Messenger. The stories are role player games (RPG) led by a story conductor in which the audience actively participate. Our aim is to develop a new storytelling ethos, methodology and some highly engaging content IP.
AUTISM RESEARCH LAB
Internationally, autism diagnoses are on the rise for both adults and young people. Whilst this can provide a measure of relief for those individuals and their families as they begin to understand the origin of many of the challenges they have faced, issues remain as they interact with the world around them. The Autism Research Lab aims to develop new insights, resources and practices that enhance the lives of autistic people and allow them to participate meaningfully in society. The Autism Research Lab does this in close partnership with autistic people, their families, educators, professionals, policymakers and the academic community.
