Over the past two weekends I facilitated a 4-session workshop on new media narratives at Abra Caracas, a space for contemporary art in Centro de Arte Los Galpones. After a course with Christiane Paul at The New School this Spring, I put together a brief syllabus meant as an introduction to different experimental narrative practices.
It was a group of seven participants with backgrounds in literature, mass communications, engineering, architecture, museography, and filmmaking. The discussions that came up as we discussed the practices were really insightful for me, in terms of understanding what people without a background in new media might find most engaging or useful for their own creative process. A more practice-oriented, specific, intensive version could follow this experience.
