How can we amplify, resource and support community accountable media? In this session, we will explore the principles and praxis of StoryShift, a new initiative building a generative future through a just and equitable transition away from exploitation of people and the planet. We will screen/show creative work, share our stories around the realities of developing deep collaborative partnerships, then close by collectively exploring the concept of "accountability" in the field of storytelling.
