Episode 45: The New Narrative of the Collective Human Journey and What it Means for our Future, with Maya Zuckerman
It’s time for our Collective Journey! Our human narrative and story needs to evolve if we want to tackle the needs of an ailing planet. We need empowering stories about the collective!
Join host Dr. Kelly and multiplatform producer, story architect and culture hacker, Maya Zuckerman as we examine the collective journey! We are experiencing a shift from the individual “hero’s journey” to a more “collective journey,” which serves as a metaphor for humanity’s transition from adolescence to adulthood. In this talk, we will touch upon numerous themes including our metanarrative, the gendered journey, culture hacking, futurism, festival culture as well as emerging media and technology. How are we creating a positive story about the world of the future, TODAY?
Maya Zuckerman’s work bridges the intersection of where Storytelling meets Technology. She has worked in film, animation, video game, interactive and new emerging media, such as Virtual Reality. In the past few years she has been focusing on emerging subcultures, media startups, transformational festivals and clean tech – watching and weaving what narrative is emerging from them all.
