Introduction to this blog

March 6, 2007

Welcome to the Story Field Conference Participant Creations blog. Here we’ll post our creations — or links to our creations* — writings, videos, audio files, graphics, whatever.

This Story Field Conference Participant Creations blog is for our narrative and artistic creations. Our other blog — the Story Field Community Conversation blog — is for free-flowing talk with each other and exploring ideas.

We invite you to post creations (and create postings) that reflect
the purpose of the Story Field Conference: to shift our culture’s “story field” in life-enhancing directions.

These can include

  • evocative images
  • visions
  • essays and stories — past, present, and future — about what’s needed, good, or possible
  • myths, journalism, dance, poetry, and humor that communicate life at its best and most meaningful
  • stories about the struggles and successes of making better lives and a better world
  • works about how stories and story-work can, are, or will make a difference
  • and anything else that serves our shared purpose.

We’re especially interested in “imagineering” stories — stories of, into, or looking back from a better future, crafted to inspire and/or help people to live into that future.

We don’t want to co-create just one dominant story or embody one life-constricting ideology. We believe that life is filled with many possibilities, many outlooks, many dimensions, many unfoldings. We want to collectively call forth a very rich and diverse field of stories that evoke a sense of positive possibility and deep reality. We want to empower better futures to come into being.

* If your creation is too big or otherwise inappropriate for posting on this blog, and you don’t have another place to post it, send a ready-to-post page (including any needed html code) to me at cii@igc.org with “Story Field Conference Submission” in the subject line. I’ll post it on the Story Field Conference site and send you a URL to link to in a blog entry here, which announces your creation to the group.
