Strategic Storyapps are specialised apps, built to simultaneously support user resilience and user-centred population research.

On the surface a Strategic Storyapp looks like a digital gamebook: an interactive choose your own pathway story where the player makes decisions for the characters.

Underneath, however, it’s a sophisticated framework that uses narrative design to purposely connect decision making to cognitive resilience and strategic data capture.

Strategic Storyapps are powerful tools for empowering communities, raising awareness and decreasing stigma. They are also a highly effective and innovative way to support a community’s key research aims.

We’ll be holding our first Strategic Storyapp event in Spring 2019, exploring the methods and technology behind these powerful tools, and how they could work for you. Please email ravi.thornton@ziggyswish.com if you’d like more information.
