Call for proposals: National Storytelling Network (US) Conference

Each year NSN strives to bring together storytellers from every corner of the world to participate in an annual conference with a wide variety of workshops, education sessions, performances, and networking opportunities. We want this year’s conference to be better than ever, but we can’t do it without YOU! From attendees to sponsors to speakers and performers we need new and familiar faces to get involved and help make the National Storytelling Conference the best event yet.

The theme for the 2020 National Storytelling Conference is…
Empathy: The Storyteller’s Superpower

Alternative approaches to addressing our differences

We live in divided times where we can easily surround ourselves with only those who think and vote like us. Storytelling is a powerful antidote that helps us slow down, listen deeply, and engage emotionally. By telling and listening to stories with respect, we activate our hearts and minds. This year, in addition to sessions related to the art, craft, business, and applications of storytelling, we seek proposals that will help:
  • Develop empathy and use it to resolve conflicts,
  • Share powerful stories,
  • Practice active listening,
  • Connect across cultural divides,
  • Find common ground,
  • Communicate difficult material through story, and
  • Unleash your superpower!
