(Digital) stories almost always seem to be about the past, even if it’s only as recent as a story about yesterday. I ran some workshops to explore the possibility of developing aspirational “Future” stories. This started with a group known as Hands On Middlesbrough. I wrote a report on this for Leeds University which you can download here.
Next I ran a Future Stories workshop for children from Stockton schools. This was a different approach as they worked in groups. Four teams produced a flip chart illustrating their story. Then all the teams came back into the same room and they each presented their images and stories. You can see just one of these to the right. Below their is a gallery showing their original image plus some of the trigger materials used to get them thinking.
