MadLab and groups – community DSLR film-makers Bokeh_Yeah! and creative electronics prototypers Arduino Manchester – worked alongside the University of Leeds, Carbon Imagineering, The BBC and Science Museum to shape the forthcoming open-access community storytelling platform, Pararchive.

During the process, participants co-produced new digital artefacts (film and physical) which demonstrate novel use of audio and video archive and showcase new digital narrative techniques.

Pararchive is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and based at the Institute of Communications Studies (University of Leeds), running until March 2015.
