Our mission statement is simple; Inspiring change through the sharing of stories.
What does this mean?
A story told out loud is the oldest form of media on the planet and sharing experiences through storytelling is part of who we are as a species.
Since the first stories were shared around a tribal fire they have influenced change in individuals and communities.
Change can be as broad as global policy or as personal as softening one’s opinion of an old foe but the common agent of change is a new perspective.
