Our latest Blog entry, by our Executive Director Daniel Bryan, explores storytelling as creative dialogue. Here is an excerpt:
"Humans are a fascinating species. Like all other animals we require food, water and shelter to live. However, unlike the rest, we have a special need. While our bodies crave alimentary sustenance, our souls, our essences, our very identities crave stories. What would our identity be like, or how would life be, without stories? Can you imagine human existence without the sharing of stories around a fire, at home, in school, at a bar, at work? There would be no reason for books, film and television. Say goodbye to music and visual art. Forget about our highly developed brains. We are a species that feeds on stories. In truth, and without a doubt, we need stories to live. They provide us with connection: to other humans, to nature, to the beyond and to our deepest self."
