Can Stories Help Save Us? How to Use Our Words to Shape the World We Want
The stories we tell have the power to shape our world. Stories are how we make sense of what’s going on around us. They help us to see ourselves and others differently, which can change what we think and believe. And in today's connected world, we now have access to stories anywhere, anytime. So how do we seize this huge opportunity? Hear from creatives using storytelling to break boundaries -- in film, television, literature, comedy and more -- and learn why telling *your* story is a crucial part of how you can create change.
