While Social Impact Entertainment is a wide arena, we focus on persuasive narratives that set out to inform and shift perspectives. Our interest and dedication is to develop a wider practice amongst creative professionals to make their social goals clear, impactful, and measurable.
The October 2020 Social Impact Writers Lab is a weekend that connects creators with experts to develop powerful pitches of social impact narratives. These stories can be told in any medium — television, film, streaming, social media, emerging media, you name it — and are currently open to any topic. By Sunday night, you will have a strong concept, backed up by expert insights, with a plan to measure the impact once released.
Looking for inspiration for a project? Consider one of these social impact subject areas.
