...to the nascent Talk to Strangers Campaign. This campaign is predicated on the belief that stories are important. They teach us how to relate to others, how to see ourselves, and how to think. Yet they're often dismissed as either entertainment or "high culture." We believe it's time for a new paradigm.
Consumer Awareness: While we have learned to decipher the labels on food products and the jargon in advertisements, most of us consume film, print, the internet, and theatre indiscriminently. We encourage you to look carefully at the stories you're being told.
Independent Voices: Corporate voices should not be the only voices. The TTSC is not anti-corporate, but we do believe that independent films, publishers, et cetera are integral to diversity in storytelling.
Community: TTSC encourates performers, producers, designers, directors, writers, conversationalists, bloggers, and others to see themselves as storytellers first.
