The stories we tell change the way we see the world, and how we participate in it. Systems are held up by stories, and to change the system we must learn to change the narratives. When we can learn to question the current stories, and craft new more inclusive and visionary ones, we can shift the way we beliefs are held, and how society works. Systemic change requires crafting, systemic narratives. Here, our words matter, how we use emotion matter, and how we message the problems we are seeking to solve matters.
But what types of stories should we be telling? Who should be telling them? And how best can we effectively inspire action with stories?
