We are increasingly seeking unique and authentic stories in our media content to inspire us to reimagine the world and ourselves. The "Storytellers" platform aims to utilize the stories elderly have as inspiration for the media industry.

It is primarily young people that work in todays media industry - especially in relation to game development. The aim of "Storytellers" is to function as a place for inspiration for people like game developers, that haven't had all the experiences that elderly people have. To strengthen the media content and to give elderly people an outlet for their stories and lives I suggest making "Storytellers". A sort of stock stories platform, where elderly can give away their stories for free or priced at a low price.

How might your idea scale and spread to reach as many people as possible?

Talk to existing stock photo platforms.

How might your idea attract and involve partners from health care, business, government, nonprofit or other sectors?

Making test cases: Movies, apps, games, pictures based on stories found on the platform.

How might you design an early experiment or prototype to further develop your idea?

Interviewing elderly, and getting app developers on board.
