#Storytelling on Instagram: a new narrative language

What is “Interactive Storytelling”? How can we tell stories through social media? How to use the visual capabilities Instagram provides for one's own artistic purposes? During the workshop, under the watchful eyes of acclaimed interactive artists – The Kissinger Twins duo – participants will tell a story they have created on Instagram. It is only with time that every new visual medium creates its own language. Over the years, Instagram has also become more than just a platform for posting selfies and photographing cappuccinos. Journalists, artists and filmmakers use it as a new narrative tool for telling complex stories. The award-winning duo The Kissinger Twins are the minds behind, among others, the @jacktorrancetrip and @sufferosajournal profiles, experimental stories told on Instagram. Their creators will share their experiences from producing their works on the platform, discuss the possibilities and limitations of the app, and guide participants through the creation of individual projects. The end result will be presented at the Digital Cultures conference on 25 September.

Workshop participants: The workshop will be attended by 15 people interested in experimenting with Instagram. We invite:

  • creators from the digital, film, and gaming industries;

  • programmers and technologists;
  • social media and interactive storytelling enthusiasts.
