Call for Creators

Story City is excited to announce the Creator Call-Out for Expressions of Interest (EOI) is now open for The City of Calgary, in partnership with The City of Calgary Downtown Strategy Team and Common Ground Arts Society.

Story City takes the traditional, passive, story experience and invites the public to step into the adventure, delivering it to smart phones and mobile devices. Through the Story City locative app, users are guided on a trail to unravel and explore a story of their own choosing. These stories, created for both locals and tourists, combines fiction, historical fact and personal choice to illuminate the area in a new and exciting way.

We are commissioning three local writers, one to two visual artists/illustrators, one to two musician/composers, and a voiceover actor to join our production team to create four new choose-your-adventure or outdoor escape room style stories for the Calgary Downtown Core.

This opportunity is open to creators in Calgary and the greater Calgary area (easily able to visit the downtown core at various stages of the project). It is a paid project for selected creators. If you are short-listed, you will also be invited to attend a free-to-you professional development day (valued at $200) on artistic collaboration and interactive storytelling.
