Changing Hearts and Minds The Science of Storytelling an AudPop and Institute for Family Case Study


In 2011, conversations begun as a result of the documentary From Place to Place led two of its stars to be invited to speak on Capitol Hill and, ultimately, to the passage of the Family First Prevention Services Act in 2018. We know that stories can change the world, but why? While humans have always intuitively connected through stories, join this panel for a conversation that digs deeper into understanding how stories evoke emotion and compel people to action. In this panel, the Institute for Family (IFF), an AudPop filmmaker, and the Singularity Group will discuss why storytelling is such a powerful agent of change and ideas for how to bridge from storytelling to movement-building.
