In Europe (and elsewhere) social isolation is a societal problem that affects older people disproportionately. The HiStory project uses storytelling around a digital app to connect people with their social environment and to preserve knowledge and hence cultural heritage.
Studio Dankl’s approach
Based on successful formats such as the Wien Museum’s storytelling circles and interviews with participants, moderators, and curators, knowledge about the important dynamics of storytelling was generated. Format and service on an analogue and digital level were developed in iterative co-creation workshops.
