The ArtiFACT Project: Building Bridges Across Cultures through Digitally-Enhanced, Multimodal Storytelling

ArtiFACT is a course-based workshop that pairs students with different communities and culminates in exhibits of co-created stories and objects. The current iteration of the project is focused on connecting ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) students with native English speakers in nearby communities. The team will create an open digital repository to share the stories and objects created by ArtiFACT workshop participants and will develop tools and curricular materials that would enable educators at other institutions to participate in the project with limited investment of time and resource; for example, by giving them tools to embed project code from digital ArtiFACT exhibits into their own interactive websites.
