    Panel 1 - Telling Tales: Inclusion and Collaboration. Whose story is it anyway?

    As digital technology is experiential, we move beyond storytelling into story living, reflecting a plurality of stories and voices that are iterative, fluid and open to repeated redefinition. 

    If we want to have authentic diverse voices, how do we create new forms of cultural narrative through digital means that might deviate from the default normative position of physical engagement? How do we collaborate to ensure unheard stories are told, but also how they are being told?
