The Storyteller Project returns with a new experiment beginning Wednesday, March 1st.
Since the last project, which ended with over $300 raised and a brand new modern audio folk tale called “The Wedding Gift”, I have also interviewed other storytellers about their position within their community and their chosen vocation. Listen to my interviews with fellow creators Ester Ellis and Tonia Ransom on the Tales from the Hearth podcast!
I am also inviting you to experiment #2, which runs between Wednesday, March 1st through Sunday, March 5th.
An experiment with our
collective investment in the arts.
Over the course of 5 days, I will create a story that is equal to the effort expected out of a part time job earning the living wage in my area: $23 per hour. This will include a variety of activities to create a new micro-podcast by the end of the week.
I hope to demonstrate – in real time – what the anatomy of a story and investment in the arts can look like as traditional means fail us.
This is a mini-crowdfund…with a twist. No matter how much I raise (even a whole $0), there will be a piece of work completed and paid for from the Storyteller Project fund. And after the week is done, any money raised over $500 will go to the next storyteller who wishes to use this experiment.
The Storyteller Project invites you to find your own fire. You can follow this project via your own particular hearth: Email, Tumblr, Discord, Facebook, Patreon, and more. The first day’s challenge, the collective tarot reading, will stream live on our Discord on Wednesday at 12PM ET. Come join us!
Thank you so much for your support. I am excited to continue this experiment, and to make stories in community.
