Columbia Digital Storytelling Lab

Columbia University School of the Arts’ Digital Storytelling Lab (DSL) presents Story I/O



The intersection of Story and Impact.

Announcing the second edition of Story I/O, the Digital Storytelling Lab’s annual symposium that explores new forms and functions of storytelling. A highly interactive one-day event, Story I/O embraces methodologies used at the Columbia Digital Storytelling Lab to build collaborative spaces where we work together to create impact around complex, global challenges.

This is not your traditional symposium

Story I/O has been designed to mix theory and practice. To that end, we will convene a highly diverse group of participants from across the University and outside it in collaborative discussion and action that will have us designing and prototyping immersive storytelling simulations for understanding and care.

The day will focus on ways to harness speculative fiction, Artificial Intelligence and empathic conversational methods to create meaningful connections in order to tackle polarizing topics.

This year this is a collaboration with the Urban Design Program, Columbia GSAPP, and Art and Art Education, Teachers College.
