Storythings is a company that started out of an event. We started The Story nearly a decade ago because we wanted to bring together and share ideas with people who tell stories in diverse ways to diverse audiences. We were so inspired by the creativity at the event that we started a company to explore different ways of telling stories.
We continue to organise events every year, for ourselves and our clients, that bring together people from different sectors and backgrounds to share experiences and inspire each other as storytellers.
A celebration of everything that is wonderful, inspiring and awesome about stories, in whatever medium possible. The Story is not about theories of stories, or making money from stories, but about the sheer visceral pleasure of telling a story, whether that is game, a movie, a book, a poem, a photograph or an exhibition. In 2019, The Story celebrates its 10th anniversary.
The world’s first conference dedicated to episodic storytelling. It features speakers from TV, games, podcasts, film and fandoms who have built successful businesses and careers telling stories people want to come back to again and again. Our first conference included speakers like author Jon Ronson and American radio producer and host Starlee Kine.
