2019 STORIES OF CHANGE STORYTELLING FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION
Sundance Institute / Skoll Foundation
INFO: Stories of Change (SOC), a partnership of Sundance Institute and the Skoll Foundation is expanding its global network of storytellers. As part of this effort we are creating the opportunity for 4 experienced filmmakers to attend the 2019 Skoll World Forum (SWF) as SOC Storytelling Fellows.
Selected SOC Fellows will attend the 2019 Skoll World Forum and travel to Oxford, England from April 6– 13, 2019. Sundance Institute will provide round trip economy travel, ground transportation (including airport pickup and drop off) in the host city, and on-site lodging. We will also cover SWF registration fees, meals on-site, and a modest honorarium of $1,200.
SOC Fellows will have the opportunity to network with Skoll-Awarded Social Entrepreneurs (SASEs) and explore the possibility of bringing their independent voice to create meaningful storytelling projects with SASEs. Activities for the week include: attending Skoll World Forum events, taking meetings with Skoll-Awarded Social Entrepreneurs (SASEs), and participating in a dinner (which includes giving a presentation about your work) that will bring together SOC Fellows, Skoll-Awarded Social Entrepreneurs (SASEs) and Sundance Institute Staff.
Stories of Change supports the creation of compelling film and media projects inspired by the work of renowned social entrepreneurs; builds and sustains a network of independent storytellers and Skoll-Awarded Social Entrepreneurs; and enhances story skills and the exchange of knowledge between these communities. This collaboration is predicated on common values and the understanding that working together, independent storytellers and social entrepreneurs can reach strategic audiences and find pathways to a better world.
