Rewriting Reality: Narrative Change in Entertainment

Mar 10, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Stories are powerful. They influence how we see the world, shaping our perception of reality and possible futures. With increasing ubiquity of digital entertainment, what responsibility do creators have for the social and cultural impact of their stories? Our panel of creatives and narrative change experts will unpack the possibilities and limitations of shifting hearts and minds through entertainment. Furthermore, they will assess the state of cultural representation in media, its contribution to social movements, and the impact of emergent technology like AI on present and future narratives.
