Agile Austin Meetup: Creating Community through Storytelling

January 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Topic: Creating Community through Storytelling

As humans there are two things in this world to which we are naturally drawn: storytelling and community. Storytelling is the primary lens through which we understand the world. We emotionally gravitate to ideas conveyed in the form of stories, and we even develop our sense of self through the stories we tell ourselves. Communities are important to us as our primary sources of love, security, pleasure, and connection.

It should come as no surprise that storytelling and community often go hand in hand. Communities form around common, narrative worldviews, and they become stronger through the stories they share amongst themselves. This takes place both as a group and a one-to-one level.

Join us this month as Nathan Young of Greater Good Storytelling leads a discussion on storytelling, community building, and how both ideas can be applied to the Agile Coaching community.

Speaker: Nathan Young

Nathan Young is a communications coach and storytelling mentor. He has worked with such groups as TEDxSanDiego, the Fleet Science Center, and is currently the director of The New Narrative, a live storytelling project that explores how societal stories can be rewritten to create a more equitable future.

Nathan has over ten years experience in marketing, public relations, social media, and storytelling. He has seen first hand how communities grow stronger through storytelling and shared narratives. Storytelling helps individuals relate to each other, understand one another, and feel a little less alone in the world.
