Narrative Strategies Symposium

During the 8th and 9th of November, around 30 experts with varied kinds of expertise, from HCI, to art, design, computer science, linguistics, literature and more, gathered in the village of Ponta do Sol on the island of Madeira for the Narrative Strategies Symposium 2014. A series of speakers presented their work our assumptions and open new avenues for to think about the theme of Prototyping what is not tangible, and discussions sparked from the participants in questioning such practices, and challenging the status quo of research in the different fields represented by the speakers backgrounds and expertise. The discussions and exchanges that followed the guest lectures where often continued over coffee breaks and meals at the Estalagem Ponta do Sol, where everyone was based for the rest of the day, and nights. The days were packed and the atmosphere vibrant. We hope that by gathering such a variety of experts for two days in such an contained and charming place we have establish a basis for connection among different disciplines and dialogue about how to prototype intangible objects, atmospheres, and future situations.
