"The Annual Summit begins with a day of quiet, nature and personal reflection. We retreat from the working world and make space to consider the deepest meaning and mission of our work. We seek to loosen the categories and constraints that typically narrow our thinking to make us efficient. The day offers options for meditation, yoga, mountain walks, journaling, artistic expression and discussion — all aimed at examining how our inner state affects how we tell stories and serve audiences."
"On Friday and Saturday, we delve into Restorative Narrative and how storytelling can help communities heal and live positively in the face of trauma and despair. We celebrate exceptional examples of this work in different media and bestow ivoh's Awards of Appreciation. We offer a workshop on how to tell these stories and explore how game design and art can use Restorative Narrative. Sessions are interactive and led by award-winning media makers, with small group breakouts. On Saturday, we discuss how best to listen to, engage and understand our communities.”
