We're once again poised to bring together an intimate group of creatives and C-suite leaders across media, marketing, technology, the arts, and beyond to explore how tomorrow’s cutting-edge technology and storytelling techniques will effect today’s most critical issues and trends. With our signature blend of intimate conversations with the world’s most innovative thinkers and doers, hands-on workshops, and mind blowing experiences, 2020’s programming will focus on how to arm the next generation of creatives and marketers with the skills they need to build empathy, inspire action, and enact change.
At FoST, we believe that people coming together around positive shared narratives can be an important catalyst for tackling the most pressing challenges of our time. If we are going to save humanity and our planet, we need to rally the world’s best storytellers to craft new, powerful narratives and find innovative ways to share them. This is our FoST Summit theme for 2020: Better Stories for a Better Future.
The Future of StoryTelling Summit is an intimate, invitation-only event that gathers a stimulating mix of thinkers and practitioners from diverse fields who are shaping the art, science, and business of storytelling in the 21st century. In the spirit of participation and inspiration, the FoST Summit aims to break the fourth wall and make attendees a vital part of the event.
