Connected Call For Proposals

CONNECTED: ACROSS THE DIVIDE – Five days of storytelling aimed at building bridges with stories.

Storytelling has been shown to be a powerful tool to help bridge differences with compassion and empathy. Stories help us see the humanity in one another, understand motivations, and appreciate similarities. This July, we will be exploring all the ways that story and storytelling help us reach across the divides that separate us. We seek proposals that share the power of story to address our differences and celebrate our commonalities. Have you used story to address divides between cultures, races, ages, religions, abilities, political parties, or storytelling forms/styles? What about the divides within or between families, communities, or organizations? Can you speak to the divides created by this pandemic, including the distance between traditions of live performance and the demands and limitations of virtual delivery? Share your expertise in helping to reach across any divide – physical, emotional, psychological, or digital. We look forward to exploring these ideas with you.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 11:59 Pm On Monday, May 10, 2021
