Storytelling Strategies for Social Change

Session Date: 
Sun., April 7, 2013:
9-10:30 am
Room: 
Governors Square 10
Activity: 
Culture, Creators and Media Makers

Media, arts and culture are vital tools for galvanizing people to take action and provoke dialogue on social and economic justice issues that affect the lives of the 99 percent. Traditionally disenfranchised communities have embraced new technologies to produce their own media, tell their own stories and distribute them without the interference of traditional gatekeepers. Representing the workers’ rights, anti-war, anti-poverty and immigrant-justice movements, presenters will discuss the power of storytelling and explore ways you can embrace storytelling in your own work to create social change.
