Storybank wants to re-conceptualise internet content at a local level, making it more TV than PC-centric, and to test its value across local and global divides.
The aim is to produce a repository of content—mainly audio-visual—that captures the essence of local community life, gives insights into their needs and relates their prior experiences of technology. Cameraphones and digital library software will be used to support the capture and sharing of this information in the form of a short audiovisual story. By focussing on audiovisual information of this kind, Storybank hopes to give a stronger voice and role to people who cannot read and write, or use the internet to record and access textual information. The same information will be also made available in translated form to UK engineers and designers to understand the needs of people from a different culture.
