Introduction: Creative Mobile Media II—Making a Difference

  • Max Schleser

Creative Mobile Media II: Making a Difference provides an overview of the edited collection and outlines its structure in the three sections: Story-making, Making spaces and Making change. This introduction frames the book theoretically and illustrates the continuation from Creative Mobile Media in an Age of Smartphones. While our previous volume focused on creative projects as inspiration for debates relating to aesthetics, space and place, knowledge and stories and the self, Creative Mobile Media II explores how smartphones may influence to social change and can further expand the definition of creative practices relating to the field of screen media. Story-making can contribute to formulating democratic processes and equity, which are imperative to create change and challenge traditional models of media production and consumption.
