The Power of Crowd-Sourced Storytelling & Publishing

Mar 16, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

In a world of increasing brevity and fragmented, always on streaming technology, crowd-sourced storytelling and publishing goes in exactly the opposite direction. Participants are asked to reflect on something of importance to them - a person, place, event or company - and write down favorite memories or observations in a way that is meant to be preserved. When multiple people preserve the same experience from their own personal viewpoint, a complex and nuanced portrait emerges that shows the depth and impact of our interdependencies. This session will explore the benefits and challenges of crowd-sourced publishing in a variety of contexts. Especially relevant for culture-forward companies.

Programming descriptions are generated by participants and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of SXSW.
