1. The Project

The Incorporeal Project is a multimedia, multidisciplinary, ludic platform that supports the use of TIN (Techniques for Interactive Narratives) which is a method for using interactive stories, such as Role-Playing Games (RPG), for educational purposes. The participants act collectively to build the RPG narrative in a cooperative way and they must incorporate their production to the supports used in the RPG sessions as co-authors. This production, which can be expressed in different languages and supports, is created during and in between the RPG sessions. To achieve this purpose we propose the Poetic Design as a means to stimulate and guide the creative process of the participants. Incorporeal Project has many applications in a wide range of educational contexts from short-term workshops to continuous disciplines from school to graduate levels.
