Quotes that Support Our Core Values:
Playwright Lee Blessing (A Walk in the Woods, nominated for a Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize):
"People are conditioned more and more to look at any enter-tainment for its surface values, not at the potential to make people question their values. We're far less content driven than we used to be. We need to use forms of entertainment, particularly theater, as a means to look at ourselves."
Take your audience on an emotional journey:
"People may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel."
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Dara Marks, Senior Special Advisor to GATE, which is the
Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment.
- - "Media is transformative when it serves its highest
function: to show us how to live.
- - The core building block of all media is story, and story is
the central delivery system of all self-knowledge.
- - Stories inform us that no one is alone that others have
walked the same precarious path toward selfhood that
life’s problems are solvable."
