VC Event

The Storytelling Exchange

An interactive and collaborative gathering at Marmalade Festival 2024 to connect storytellers with those who want them.

An interactive and collaborative gathering to connect those who produce, publish, and have ideas for solutions-driven visual stories that positively impact our world.

Join global media organization the Video Consortium, in partnership with digital publisher and production partner Freethink Media, for an exciting afternoon of practical skillshares and conversational sparks to ignite meaningful future collaborations for your story to get told. Come for the people and ideas, stay for the mind share, and leave with valuable connections and inspiration!

Part I: Arrive on time for our opening knowledge sharing circles to acquire insights from skilled storytellers and creators around the art and craft of storytelling. Topics will include presentations on development, production, publishing, and fundraising — led by storytelling organizations like Video Consortium, Freethink, Skoll Foundation, Docubox and more!

Part II: Then, stick around to exchange ideas and find new collaborators in a lightly facilitated community-building session, in which you’ll get to meet the folks you need to bring your ideas to life. We’ll be connecting those who have story ideas with others who publish, tell, and fund stories, and vice versa.

Filmmakers, journalists, social entrepreneurs, publishers and funders or anyone interested or involved in the field of impact-focused media making, distribution, and communications are welcome! Please join us to share and learn.
