Discover new, valuable and original stories during this presentation of Story Jam: New Neighbours. Story Jam brings together artists, creative technologists, filmmakers and designers to stimulate a new generation of storytellers. Any form of visual storytelling is possible! The aim? To explore, share and strengthen our common identity through stories.

In this edition, six multidisciplinary and intercultural teams will take a detailed look at the composition of society in the Netherlands and Utrecht. Guided by mentors, they will attend a series of talks and creative workshops prior to the festival. At the end of the working period, they will share their results with the public using the medium best suited to the makers and their story, in project forms ranging from a web experience to a performance, app or installation.

Come and try out these interactive and dynamic story prototypes!
