Storylab Workshops from 2017 – 2020
Multimedia University, Malaysia, National Film and Television Institute, Ghana, and University of Ibague, Colombia, each hosted a 3 day workshop with participating independent filmmakers from their catchment area. Each workshop was followed by a 1 day reflective seminar between participating and collaborating researchers.
Utilising interdisciplinary approaches inspired from music and anthropology, the Research Network developed a methodology entitled Ethnomediaology. Ethnomediaology involves the active and immersive participation of researchers in the research culture and process, using this active personal engagement as a basis for knowledge generation, data gathering and evaluation. A unique feature of this network is the lateral collaboration that taking place between practice led film and media researchers in developing countries across continents.
