Story:Web is an idea for how museum collections, images and sounds shared online, and people’s experiences could be connected to make sense of climate action and other global issues. It is already an interactive demonstration on show in Glasgow up to and during COP26. We now need people aged 17-25 to take part in Newcastle-based design workshops and online activities that will help us turn Story:Web into a real system that can be used on social media and in museums.

Story:Web is a collaboration between the Great North Museum: Hancock, Open Lab at Newcastle University, and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. Through taking part in this project you will gain experience of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and social media ‘chatbots’, access the expertise of museum curators and climate change communicators, and shape an interactive media system that could help others understand and take action on global issues like climate change.
