The Storyteller's Compass
The Storytellers' Compass uses conversational storytelling to create a mosaic of stories and ideas. Participants "play" hexagonal cards representing stories ranging from personal experiences to world tales. As the conversation evolves, the cards form unique patterns of stories. By the end of the 4-hour experience, participants have a deeper understanding of their own living body of text and a method for organizing many short stories into one thematically integrated composition.
