Welcome to the Storytelling Academy
The Storytelling Academy at Loughborough University is an interdisciplinary research team based at the School of Design and Creative Arts.
Applied Storytelling has become a key research strength at Loughborough over the past five years and one where we have an international reputation for excellence. We have been involved in over 20 projects of various sizes, ranging from a few thousand pounds to over a million pounds in value, funded by organisations as diverse as AHRC, NERC, ESRC, MRC, EPSRC, British Academy and the European Commission.
The work is invariably interdisciplinary, involving collaborations with the health, social and environmental sciences and both academic and non-academic partners, from local community organisations to large NGOs. We have worked throughout the UK, but also across Europe (with partners in France, Spain, Italy, Malta, Greece, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Lithuania, Poland, Turkey and Norway), and in low-to-middle income countries across the world (Kenya, Uganda, India and Colombia). We are also developing a programme of work in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.
