WHAT IS ABU MEDIA LAB DAYS?
ABU Media Lab Days is a series of encounters aimed to facilitate creative and meaningful dialogues among ABU members and digital innovators to help them find new inspiration and to discuss new approaches that they are able to use back in their organisations.
The objective of establishing ABU Media Lab Days in collaboration with WAN-IFRA Global Innovation for Media Innovation (GAMI) is to provide ABU members with the opportunity to experiment new forms of storytelling and generate innovative online and digital contents.
ABU MLD is aimed at members to innovate with products and providing the opportunity for ABU formats to find new ways to tell stories for digital immigrants and natives. These encounters are targeted to have a more focused approach on specific storytelling challenges by genre or technological opportunities.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
It is open to all ABU Members who have innovation teams developing new digital storytelling approaches and techniques or are interested in starting experimentations in innovative digital content creation within their organisations.
The programme is aimed at fostering the exchange of experiences and best practices in the digital field to learn from each other and to foster creativity and innovation in the fields of web and mobile creation, interactivity and digital storytelling. Participants can exchange collaborative and innovative solutions, knowledge and ideas for innovative digital products based on their own experiments.
By the end of each edition, participants will be able to develop and experiment with digital innovations and new forms of storytelling at their respective organisations.
For our first edition, we would like to focus on digital/innovation projects that you’d like to work on at your labs/organisations. This could be ideas that you are already working on or just at the inception stage. Even if you don’t have any ideas at the moment, come join us and we can help you identify topics/projects that you can explore.
