A Braid Story

This digital story was written and recorded by Team Zoe* and facilitated by Kyle Oliver over the course of several Zoom sessions during the summer of 2020. It gives a glimpse into the life of a Braid team over several years of ups and downs and the types of activities teams typically enjoy together.

This media was created as part of Kyle’s doctoral dissertation about Braid, which was released as a four-episode podcast. If you are interested in learning more about digital storytelling or the founding philosophy of Braid (Tapestry), please visit the Becoming Tapestry website.
