Story Movements is a catalytic two-day convening that examines platforms and genres of civic media storytelling through the lens of social justice and social inequality. From documentary film to comedy to the entertainment industry to creative storytelling activism and beyond, the convening examines and captures the current and future-looking moment in story-led demands for social change. Through talks, panels and discussions, the convening looks through the lens of contemporary themes of social inequality and injustice to ask and answer:
- What works?
- How can genres of civic, justice-oriented storytelling work with one another?
The convening responds to the vitality of the moment in civic media platforms and stories, as well as the urgency of social justice and inequality, and optimism and hope for change.
