Panel II: Storytelling 2.0: Keeping it Real, Opening Minds, and Changing Hearts
There’s no doubt that stories can make a difference—whether it’s a radio drama for girls education in Afghanistan, a tv soccer soap opera in Kenya sparking cross-ethnic dialogue, or documentary like An Inconvenient Truth pushing climate change to the fore. But what about those who use the power of story to recruit extremists and promote violence? This panel, Storytelling 2.0, will consider how best to amplify the potential of documentary and narrative film to help bridge inter-group conflicts , and look at innovative new models for supporting storytelling that produces positive social change.
