…And as an invitation to co-create on the Internet
La Mandarina de Newton will make several open proposals for co-creating nano-stories through social networks to all Internet users. A new story will be co-created each week during the month of June, starting with the first sentence of the three winning stories and the story Guatzsap. This initiative, called “To Be Continued …” will propose the participants to continue the story by adding new sentences starting from the first one. The co-creative process will take place in parallel

This co-creation will take place in parallel on the Co-Creating Cultures Blog, Co-Creating Cultures Facebook and Twitter @cocreatingcult. New nano-sories (even shorter stories) will be created inspired by the begginings by the beginnings of the winning stories and built from the participation of several people. Modelling the evolution of the same history across different platforms will provide us a wide variety of rich and interesting stories.
