How can storytelling support the shift to a just, generative, and sustainable future? How can we amplify solutions, successes, and the radical visions of those most impacted by exploitation and extraction - directly, or as accountable accomplices? This participatory, multidisciplinary and hands-on one day network gathering will help you harness the power of story in your strategies for social change.

The morning will be an introduction to story-based strategy. In the afternoon we’ll dive deep into principles and practices to remedy extractive storytelling while dreaming, scheming, and creating the kinds of stories we need to tell for inspiring a future that bends the arc towards justice and liberation. This workshop includes an introduction to story-based strategy with no prerequisites. Our explorations will include multi- and interdisciplinary forms of storytelling and media platforms, including ways to integrate film with other mediums such as visual art, music, movement, healing rituals, and performance in your work.

This network gathering is presented by the Center for Story-based Strategy - a national movement-building organization dedicated to harnessing the power of narrative for social change, and StoryShift - an initiative coordinated by Working Films building a collaborative network and resourcing hub for media-makers, artists, activists, and organizers who are building powerful alternatives to structural racism, oppression, and inequity in the face of climate change.
