Hace un año y medio, con un grupo de colegas de Barcelona, comenzamos a soñar con un evento que fuera más allá del clásico congreso académico. Nos organizamos bajo el nombre de Storycode Barcelona -una red mundial dedicada a las narrativas transmedia, interactivas e inmersivas- y poco a poco fuimos perfilando lo que terminó siendo la @Transmedia_Week: un meta-evento a escala internacional que, sin ningún tipo de financiación y sólo gracias al trabajo de un pequeño grupo de apasionados por el transmedia, terminó generando actividades en 20 ciudades de 8 países.
