Fighting Stereotypes and Scapegoating: Storytelling with a Sense of History

“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” – Edmund Burke As we watch the world move into repeated patterns of stereotypes and scapegoating, those who control the narrative have the power to create war or peace. Panelists of the Asian American Community discuss the challenges they encounter and how they incorporate a sense of history to enlarge the frame of personal stories, create awareness and empathy, and (like all good stories) entertain.

Each year NSN strives to bring together storytellers from every corner of the world to participate in an annual conference with a wide variety of workshops, education sessions, performances, and networking opportunities. We want this year’s conference to be better than ever, but we can’t do it without YOU! From attendees to sponsors to speakers and performers we need new and familiar faces to get involved and help make the National Storytelling Conference the best event yet. We’ll release more information as it becomes available so check back often for updates on keynote speakers, registration, housing, and events associated with the National Storytelling Conference.

Due to COVID-19, NSN’s National Conference went VIRTUAL. IN 2020 we featured 253 storytellers from around the world telling stories, hosting, delivering keynotes, and/or leading workshops and panel discussions. Over 9 days and 82 hours, we trained dozens of storytellers in using this new medium and brought the connection and wisdom of storytelling to homes around the world. We hope 2021 will be just as exciting!
