From the comfort of your very own podcast stream, join us at London’s Barbican for an evening of talks, installations and an interactive performance about the future of storytelling… 


Stories of the past have been carved, painted and printed. Today, they are whispered through earbuds, watched through screens and available to download. 


In this episode, host Tiernan Douieb talks to writer and critic Olivia Laing, near-future author Stephen Oram and writer and narrative designer Chella Ramanan


We will also explore how stories might be told in the future through installations from the Royal College of Art, and immersing ourselves in an animal love story with performance artist David Finnigan.

Find out about Nesta’s new Alternarratives Prize -  a £15,000 prize for writers to explore innovation in short-form storytelling.
