“The Fourth Industrial Revolution may indeed have the potential to ‘robotize’ humanity and thus to deprive of our heart and soul. But as a complement to the best parts of human nature-creativity, empathy, stewardship – it can also lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a shared sense of identity” (Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum, 2016).

StoryLab is hosting a one-day symposium and exhibition with practitioners, technologists and academics using the intersection between creativity and technology to explore ‘creativity, empathy and stewardship ’ in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Digital technologies have made possible new forms of storytelling, which are even more important in this rapidly changing social, economic and political landscape.
