Just saying Hello I live in Madrid but I used to live in Manchester. I read poems but I used to write them. I love innovation in storytelling but I used to get confused by it. I just wanted to introduce myself. Have more questions? Submit a request Comments Belen Santa-Olalla October 21, 2013 15:00 Hi Donal! Welcome to our community! My story is kind of the other way round, I used to live in Madrid and now I live in London... What are you doing there? Do you have any projects you want to bring to life? Great to have you here! Donal Thompson October 21, 2013 15:07 I'm interested in poetry and the creation of the world of each poem. I think there are many ways to experience poetry and that's why transmedia looks appealing. That being said, I am no expert, I am working with the Universidad Internacional de La Rioja on three things - (a) creating a new language platform, (b) directing seminars and (c) advising in a project to take Shakespeare into Spanish schools. In my own time (what I have of it) I am trying to launch a community theatre project for Madrid. Great to be here. Belen Santa-Olalla October 21, 2013 18:07 Great, Donal. My background is in theatre, so what you said about taking Shakespeare into Spanish schools and about your community theatre project for Madrid sounds really appealing to me! Do you have a website or more information we could have a look at? About your language platform, how does it work? Is it a piece of software, a database, a community? Donal Thompson October 21, 2013 18:49 Belen, you're a theatre person from Madrid! That is fantastic!! I have a personal website http://www.donal.info and a theatre website http://www.teatromad.com. The language platform we are building from zero and so it is still under wraps. It will be for students of UNIR (http://www.unir.net) I am also playing with the idea of creating my own microcursos of English...but that's just an annoying buzz in my head at the moment :-) D Belen Santa-Olalla October 22, 2013 15:03 Eso es fantástico, tiene muy buena pinta! He escrito algunas cosas sobre el actor en la narración transmedia, puedes echarle un ojo aquí: www.universotransmedia.com Qué sabes de Conducttr? A lo mejor te interesa para alguno de tus proyectos! Donal Thompson October 26, 2013 06:02 La verdad el idea de transmedia me fascina.
