Find Collaborators through a joyful sense of making
Forward Slash 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.
