Creating storyworlds and digital trails
At Visioning Lab, we have a specialist storytelling department that can support you with all your world building needs. This includes creative input at all stages of production, from research, to development and delivery. We have worked with a range of institutions, such as the Wordsworth Grasmere, TransAction Theatre, Commonword and Salford Lads Club, to create compelling narratives that fit specific briefs.
We also manage the creation of digital trails through the use of PopupView and the soundwalk app, Echoes. In 2021, we designed Dorothy Wordsworth soundwalks in collaboration with the Wordsworth Grasmere, Women in the Hills network and Grasmere Women’s Institute. This involved running an online session and a 2 day workshop to understand Dorothy’s work better and situate her travel journal in the context of Grasmere. Then designing a walk for the Echoes app.
We also aided the development of ‘The Other Folk of Chorlton Woods’, featuring Illustrator and Tik-Tok Creator, Hannah Mosley, as part of the Chorlton Arts Festival. This sound walk uses poetry and visual art to guide users through the woods and explore key figures in UK and Celtic Folklore.
