Shaping new forms of STORY
FORWARD/STORY (Forward Slash Story) is an invite-only 3 day residential lab taking place May 16, 17 & 18th, 2014. A lab where storytellers working in tech don’t give presentations. There are no projects or mentors only peers. Participants share and explore the creative challenges of telling stories that break new ground. Five core challenges that storytellers face will be explored in a collaborative environment. On-site expenses are covered for those who attend.
The report will cover the art, craft and biz of storytelling.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
We received almost 100 applications from all over the world. 20 storytellers from six different countries were selected for F/S 2014 – a diverse group of storytellers working in a variety of forms. All are rooted by the desire to push at the edges of what storytelling can be. A mix of futurists, economists, game designers, writers, product designers, behaviorists, creative technologists, puppeteers, screenwriters and social activists. We’re thrilled to announce the participants of F/S 2014.
