Our incubation in the 1st digital and creative lab of the French government in New York in 2015: American Digital Lab // Connecting Cultures.
Transmedia Ready was in NYC for the first session of the FRENCH AMERICAN DIGITAL LAB. The programme has many partners including Business France and the New Media Center in New York, and is conducted by the Cultural Services of the French embassy.
The theme is #Storytelling, meaning for us « immersive storytelling » to refer to the work developed these latest years by practitioners in the fiels of media, culture and the arts, with the digital tools of the 21st century.
What we are trying to do since 2010:
- inspire creative ways of making sense
- communicate with quality design and the arts
- foster the participatory and digital culture
- work in a cross cultural ecosystem

This is a design thinking tool for innovation in communication and transmedia design.

This is possible by working with our Directory of talent and experts. Based on this holistic approach, we foster and facilitate a cultural bridges. Transmedia Ready has developped a workshop format to optimize the assets of a creative project, or a communication campaign, based on an innovative methodology. Storytelling is at the very heart of our concept and is one of the key element that enable to link the different versions of a transmedia experience. But not only…
