Sitting at the intersection of cutting edge technology and storytelling, Convergence is a forum for storytellers of all stripes to actively explore the shifting media landscape. The advent of digital and social media has created a new sort of audience. No longer content to be passive consumers of entertainment, the members of the “new audience” expect to be active participants in their media. The traditional lines separating the arts are being blurred by innovative makers who are creating stories that span multiple platforms, remixing the original and the established to create a bold new form of art. Through presentations of new work, panel programs, and special events, Convergence brings the best in immersive storytelling and transmedia to New York.
