The art of storytelling, according to the founders of StoryCorps and Humans of New York | TED

The art of storytelling, according to the founders of StoryCorps and Humans of New York | TED | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

"Between them, Dave Isay, TED Prize winner and founder of StoryCorps, and Brandon Stanton, founder of Humans of New York, have collected more than 75,000 stories from regular people around the world. Isay collects his stories as audio files, while Stanton takes a photo and then interviews his subject — but they’ve both developed fascinating techniques for helping people to open up. They sat down recently to talk about their work and their thoughts on what makes for an honest, open interview environment."

A supportive culture breeds good stories.Engage deeply. Interrupt kindly.Trust in people.Do not commodify your stories.If you have a calling, pursue it relentlessly.
Via Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)
Kajsa Hartig's insight:

E"ngage deeply. Interrupt kindly. People aren’t very good at knowing how to tell their own stories, says Stanton, and that means that they’re often vague and imprecise. Cutting through that is part of the interviewer’s job."

11 Ways Remarkable Storytellers Create Reality Distortion Fields | Inc.

11 Ways Remarkable Storytellers Create Reality Distortion Fields | Inc. | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

"Elon Musk and Steve Jobs are both known for their seemingly mystical power to distort reality. What gives them this ability isn’t a quirk of a charismatic leader; it’s a learnable skill called storytelling.

 

The better at storytelling someone is, the more that readers and listeners are transported to a whole new world. According to studies conducted on this transportation phenomenon, great stories alter beliefs, result in the loss of access to real-world facts, evoke emotions, and significantly reduce ability to detect inaccuracies. To understand this phenomenon, you don’t need to look any further than your own personal experience desperately rooting for an immortal, time-traveling mutant in X-Men or another equally impossible character and plot from your favorite movie."

 

Read the full article to find out more about how 11 top online storytellers, who collectively generate hundreds of millions of page views every month, craft stories:

Balance the universal with the specificBe unapologetically authenticTest your story until it’s a wow every timeDo a double punch with visual storiesAdd incertainty to your plotDisrupt your industry’s fairy tale storiesCome from a place of stillnessUse open loops to create anticipationUse quotes to build charactersFind and reverse-engineer the emotions behind great storiesBring them through an emotional roller coaster

Kajsa Hartig's insight:

"How will you (the staff inside your museum, not contractors orconsultants) 1) fix things that break or don’t work? and 2) transform great new ideas into real exhibits and programs? If you can’t come up with credible answers to both questions, I’m afraid that not only will you be constantly racing to “put out fires” in the form of problems that could have been anticipated (as opposed to the many un-anticipated ones you’ll encounter) but your bright, shiny museum will soon become dingy and boring, not only physically, but in its intellectual and emotional spirit as well."
