After months of planning, we are very excited to kick off the EMOTIVE project in Athens!
On November 26th, members from all eight partner institutions and companies gathered at the offices of the Athena Research Institute to meet, greet and plan the work ahead.
Over the next three years, the team will research, design, develop and evaluate various ’emotive storytelling’ methods and tools. Our goal is to produce a prototype software platform and user application capable of generating immersive, personalised digital narrative experiences for museum and heritage site visitors.
The team includes archaeologists, researchers, designers, writers and developers – a strong interdisciplinary group for the task ahead. Additionally, the project will reach out to a range of specialists in user design, gaming, curation, digital engagement and interpretation, to inform our work and build a network around the project.
Regular updates will be posted here and on social media, so watch this space!
