If we want to change our world, we have to change our stories, their content, viewpoints, and protagonists. And it’s important that we become aware of how we tell our stories, our tone of voice, visual language, and energetic frequency. I am happy to share knowledge from my experience as creative director, consciously working with storytelling in words and visuals. Please come with questions, and bring your publications or drafts (if you have).
