Is something that I’m becoming more and more interested in. What is about stories that have the power to do more than entertain? Why do we as humans seek out narrative above the stochastic? What makes it both comforting and challenging, sometimes simultaneously?
I think one of the best ways to answer these questions is to tell stories yourselves. Something about narrative doesn’t really become inculcated until you practice creating them rather than mere consumption. What would it look like if each person in the HRC wrote at least one story a year (or danced a story or filmed one, or played one on guitar, so long as it’s an original story)?
