The StoryTagging project will increase the market reach of creative industry SMEs by developing a digital platform ‘Northword’ that will allow creatives to harness (as stories) much of what makes Northern localities distinctive to the people who live and work there.
Project partners will work with local communities to gather stories that celebrate these local heritage assets that are unique to the NPA area. Stories will be mapped via the ‘Northword’ platform. Several stories shared by the community will be selected by Ulster University and Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage to be recorded by a storyteller to inspire creative works.
StoryTagging project partners will advertise locally for creative SMEs to bring stories to life through new products or works. The project will promote the ‘Northword’ platform internationally and digital marketing models will be applied to enhance the market reach of participating creatives.
Visitors accessing stories will also access information about participating SMEs and their products and works. The project will promote the ‘Northword’ platform internationally and digital marketing models will be applied to enhance the market reach of participating creatives.
