Forward/Story (Forward slash Story) is an application-only residential lab for writers, artists, technologists and designers who work in uncharted territories to share their journey, techniques, socialize, collaborate, and solve problems. The lab takes place May 11th – 15th, 2017 in an exotic location. On-site expenses are covered for those who attend.
Forward/Story attempts to tackle some of the most difficult problems surrounding storytelling in the 21st Century. A gathering of thinkers & doers working across a diversity of creative fields come together for 4 days focused on sharing, making, experimentation and innovation.
How can we tap into our memories to uncover what makes a great team experience? How can we make sense of our journey from career changes by fringe-dwellers? Welcome to the first Forward Slash Story Remote Show!
In 2009, we (Christy & Lance) were chatting over lunch at an industry event. Catching the precious time we had between mentoring duties, to quickly reveal our deepest thoughts. We spoke about the need for an event for people like us. A place where the people who share maps of the new frontiers can put their feet up for while.
In 2014 we ran Forward Slash Story: a residential weekend with 20 selected creatives from around the globe coming together to do anything but give presentations. What do you do for people who are already working in emerging artforms?
