Eventbrite - CMF Event: Storytelling - Can we be More Adventurous?

There are many influences on storytelling, from those that have to do with the craft – such as who the audience is and which medium or platform is being used to tell the tale – to those that have to do with commercial realities.

Do financing, commissioning, “received wisdom,” safety concerns – a plethora of pressures that have nothing to do with telling a story – put a stranglehold on our storytelling?

Does second-guessing what will or won’t work commercially limit our ability to do something different, to break through – to tell stories that are uniquely ours?

How can we use the changing media landscape to take more risks with our stories?  And in doing so, how can we cater for a more diverse audience?
