STORYBOX with Diversified

Join us in viewing a short summary video of the outputs from the latest Diversified project. The research continues the development of a pluriversal community-led participatory framework for inclusive design. In this project our goal is to evaluate and communicate the imapct of public space media to community stakeholders, government, and industry groups. In co-design workshops held at UNSW, we deployed this framework as a case study while collaborating with neurodivergent participants to create compelling audio-visual content, in the form of digital stories. The project is a partnership with Esem Projects and uses their public space media platform STORYBOX, as part of cultural programming aimed at re-activating public spaces post-COVID-19.

Through this project, we are not only advancing new models for valuing public space media but also addressing digital inclusion for neurodivergent communities, promoting public awareness of and engagement with neurodiversity. The results of the co-design workshops were showcased on STORYBOX at Customs House, Sydney CBD on 17 April 2023, giving participants a chance to share their work with the wider community.

STORYBOX will be coming to UNSW soon: the installation will be located near the Library, by the old Commonwealth Bank on Upper Campus, from Monday 16 October to Friday 17 November.
