Oasis is the monitoring and evaluation app we have been developing for the WE Program. For this project I have been the team lead and system architect. We have recently launched Oasis internally and the public-facing webpage will come soon!
DISC MythLab 3.0
I brought together six storytellers to engage in a months-long spontaneous storytelling project. Together we created a world from thin air, and then told it to each other. This was a great experiment in unstructured storytelling and a huge success!
DISC Radio Season One - What Story Changed Your Life?
I asked six people that question and got six great answers.
WE Principles Defined!
At the end of 2020 we finished (finally) with our first definition of the WE Principles. Five simple rules that govern how the program works with human rights and humans.
Paulina Vanderbilt and I teamed up to create The Garden, a hybrid digital & social workshop about storytelling and the Sustainable Development Goals. Recently we pitched this workshop to Nuffic, and are getting ready for the next school year.
My first interactive story inspired by the strange landscape of Zeeland. Also featuring my partner walking away from the camera, because she doesn't always like to be in pictures.
DISC MythLab 1.0 & 2.0
The online community of practice I started during lockdown ran for two season in the original format, centred around every asking questions about our craft to the group.
Together Gijs Walstra and I created this documentary about the work of a EU-backed project in Ukraine for TU Delft.
Same Same, But Different
DISC Radio Season Two
With the help of Sahiti Sarva, I turned the MythLab 3.0 stories into a podcast series!
TU Delft Resilience Lab Stories & Web Design
I created several pieces for the Resilience Lab, my favourites are this story and this interactive. I also did lots of the website layout design and writing.
Gaca, A Voice to the Voiceless
Justice & Peace
This is Gaca's story, that I turned into words. Gaca is a journalist from Burundi who has been chased from his home by his own government.
BlinkLane Storytelling Workshop
Together with Terra we took DISC's storytelling workshop to BlinkLane Consulting in Amsterdam. A few weeks after our workshop we hosted a great night of stories in a pub in the Red Light District with the BlinkLane team.
I got really bored during lockdown, so I created this photographic poetic essay about what was on my mind at the time. Some of the pieces were displayed at a local theatre with other COVID-inspred art.
WE Program Interactive Text Analysis
We took a set of interviews about the WE team, and began building a set of statistical & machine reading tools that gave us a new way of understanding what was being said.
Madi, A Voice for Change in The Gambia
Madi's was my first Justice & Peace story. It was great fun talking with Madi, I learned so much from him in such a short time.
Through the Screen
My first podcasting project was an overly ambitious one. For a month I wrote, recorded, and produced a show fives days a week for the TPM faculty at TU Delft. It was a great way to get a lot miles.
