Will social media kill Western storytelling. Chris Riley, of studioriley asked the audience at PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO to listen to the globes’ creative voices. While traditional media has developed a single narrative around culture and the world, social media has allowed a generation of storytellers to counter the status quo and tell better stories about people, places and ideas.

Some key points from Chris’ talk:

  • We are a world of many emerging voices, not one monotonous voice, thanks to the internet
  • The West sits in a “very powerful media narrative, oblivious to the narrative of others”
  • The ability to gain insight into how creativity manifests itself in different cultures provides new and eye-opening sources of inspiration.
  • Other storytellers, other narratives, will challenge the way you think
  • “Unless you’re listening to the really powerful storytellers, you’ll never really understand the world”
  • These storytellers are an emerging professional class of creative photographers, writers and artists
  • They are not confined to Western institutions and are creating a colorful world of many voices
