Please join Futures Without Violence for the first-ever Storyteller Summit, presented by the Courage Museum, in collaboration with Actual Films. The afternoon program will feature a series of participatory discussions with an inspiring group of individuals who have chosen to share their experiences with gender and race-based discrimination and violence, for the inaugural Empathy Mirror installation at the upcoming Courage Museum in San Francisco.
Throughout the afternoon, we will take participants behind the scenes as storytellers engage in roundtable discussions with two of the installation’s award-winning documentary filmmakers, Bonni Cohen and Bing Liu, who are producing and directing this groundbreaking interactive storytelling experience in collaboration with the museum’s award-winning experience design firm, Local Projects.
Audience engagement and networking opportunities will be embedded in the schedule to allow for deeper engagement with other attendees, as well as the storytellers and directors.
Space is very limited. Please be sure to RSVP as soon as possible.

EMPATHY MIRROR INSTALLATION OVERVIEW
The Empathy Mirrors installation is the emotional pinnacle of the visitor journey in the Courage Museum. Within this gallery, visitors will engage with a range of storytellers as they share their experiences of witnessing or surviving hate, discrimination and/or violence, and the courage they each demonstrated in the face of adversity. Through empathetic listening and developmentally appropriate, reflective Q & A interactions between storytellers and participants, visitors will be prompted to consider their own capacity for moral courage and action.
