What We’re Doing

The New Narrative is a live interactive social event
What We're DoingMany of us grew up with a set of values that represent the standard narrative of American culture. Within this narrative the basic trajectory of life was seen as go to college, get a job, get married, buy a house, have kids, go to church, work every day until you have saved up enough money, then retire.

Many of us have realized that plan isn’t working anymore. Some of us have struggled to make it work, others have rejected it outright and still other have never even had access to this lifestyle. As we embark on a new direction for how we live and define our life, we also need a new set of values to live by going forward.

New Narrative events will bring together speakers from multiple disciplines to share their stories on the vision they have for the future and the narratives they’ve found to guide them towards that goal.

Speakers will come from the arts, academia, nonprofit, activism, science, spirituality, business and neighborhood communities to share their insights.

Some of the stories will pose a question. Other will help provide an answer. Each story will help better us understand why the conversation is important.

Events will focus on a different theme at the core of human existence, such as Community, Communication, Education, Family, Relationships, Identity and more.

If you’d like to share your story or recommend a speaker we’d love to hear from you. Email us at thenewnarrative1@gmail.com.
