A narrative environment
is a space, whether physical or virtual
, in which stories can unfold (in other words, anyplace). A virtual narrative
environment might be the narrative framework in which game play can proceed. A physical narrative environment might be an exhibition area within a museum, or a foyer of a retail space, or the public spaces around a building - anywhere in short where stories can be told in space. It's also a term coined by the Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design program in Narrative Environments.
