60 Seconds: What Is Engaged Storyism®?
by Diane Wyzga | August 13, 2020 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
I was asked, what is Engaged Storyism®?
Consider Engaged Storyism® like engaged activism, engaged environmentalism, engaged Buddhism, and the like.
Our formal storytelling traditions have been lost and authentic story has been co-opted and conscripted for the business world. Engaged Storyism® is a way to revive authentic storytelling for communities, organizations, and people by engaging in story to shift attitudes, behavior, and culture – not as a trick or a means to a profit. Rather, becoming energetically engaged with social concerns by listening out the stories of those concerns: peace, the environment, being dispossessed, end of life, the prison system, and so on.
Why? Imagine how we might engage with story to make changes in society toward a greater good? This is my aspiration.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic. Speaking of magic, would you share a nice rating/review on Apple Podcasts and when you come back bring your friends and rellies.
