Today's broadband technologies need bandwidth intensive usage
in order to grow as an technological platform.
At the moment this potential is used in a fairly traditional manner.
To unlock user, user groups and emerging communities to migrate
to broadband platforms innovative interactive concepts that build up
meaningful participatory communication patterns are needed.

Interactive storytelling and interactive design represent the creative
 interplay between devoted users/communities and the writer/design team.
The workshop will establish and explore a practical professional
approach for the creation of innovative broadband concepts by
focusing on user-centered content creation,
designing interaction patterns based on storytelling and exploration,
building up self-generative fictional dynamics for community cohesion,
planning innovative directing tactics for professional content/design teams,
participatory publishing strategies.

This approach may be applied to telecommunication, broadcasting, game,
film, art projects as well as creative initiatives for cities or museumsŠ

The training is aiming in the first place at professionals
(developers, writers, producers, designers, programmers...)coming from MEDIA
member countries. Applicants coming from other countries please contact the
