Work with the acclaimed not-for-profit The Moth to shape your personal story of what makes you a social entrepreneur. In this workshop we will teach and apply the Seven Principles of Moth Storytelling which have been developed through work with thousands of Moth storytellers from well-known writers, musicians, filmmakers and performers, such as Ethan Hawke, Frank McCourt, Malcolm Gladwell, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Moby, Anna Deavere Smith, Gabriel Byrne, Mira Nair, Lili Taylor, Kyle MacLachlan and Rev Al Sharpton to a man exonerated after 19 years of imprisonment, a NYC cop, a reformed pickpocket, an astronaut who commanded the first shuttle mission after the loss of Challenger, an umpire, and a voodoo priestess. The workshop will include an opening presentation, small group work and a final presentation of select stories. The Moth comes to the Ashoka Future Forum via Jake Shapiro, Ashoka Fellow and CEO of PRX Public Radio Exchange, who present The Moth’s Peabody Award Winning Moth Radio Hour (http://themoth.org/radio) on over 250 radio stations across the country.
