The Post Digital Audio Quilt: A Pop Up, Speculative & Inclusive Audio Fiction Experiment exploring AI Wellness
Participants will hear the start of a story exploring wellbeing including an AI character in a post-digital lockdown future setting. They will be invited to create and record the next part of the story using prompts and frames including themes of shared joy and healing using an online form. Digital storytelling has been argued to be a positive way to engage a diverse range of voices “capturing lives, creating community” (Lambert & Hessler, 2018). The collaborative audio fiction experiment will act as a platform to bring together diverse co-constructed community knowledge and shared experience of wellbeing exploring how AI can be used to support wellness outcomes during the lockdown and beyond, in both an innovative and inclusive capacity - “In the world of media convergence, every important story gets told” (Jenkins, 2006: p3).
