Call for Workshops

We are looking for emerging narrative practices and innovative narrative practitioners to host a workshop at BEYOND STORYTELLING 2018 in Hamburg.

The narrative field is always evolving and expanding. From the impact of virtual reality to the possibilities of new communication technologies the way we tell stories and work with narratives in organizations is transforming.
