The Brief


Story City, with the support of the Riverland Youth Theatre, will be seeking to commission the creation of ONE interactive Choose Your Own Story adventure narrative, centred around the Barmera Area. The story will be available through the free Story City app for at least a year.


Story City takes the reading experience from the traditional printed page and delivers it to smart phones and mobile devices. Through the Story City locative app, readers are guided on a trail to unravel and explore a story of their own choosing. This story, created for both locals and tourists, combines fiction, historical fact and personal choice to illuminate the area in a new and exciting way.


Story City will commission a local writer, visual artist, and musician to collaborate on the project and deliver something truly unique to the community of Barmera.
