Writer: n/a
Director: International Storytelling Center
Producer: Elliott Childress
Abstract: The Young Appalachian Story Summit is a young adult-led event that focuses on a critical issue: how young adults can use storytelling as a leadership tool to create Appalachia’s future. Summit participants have the opportunity to hear from diverse voices within Appalachia; to understand how storytelling can help them take action in their own communities; and to join a network of like-minded young Appalachians to collaborate with beyond the event. The 2021 Summit, Crossroads, focused on the intersections of who we are and how we engage our voices with the wider community. Participants collaboratively explored their own strengths at these “crossroads” and developed concrete ways to use these strengths as tools in their lives and work by using the power of storytelling to cultivate a united voice during global unease. The Summit included workshops, networking, story circles, and a panel discussion to empower young adults to share their voices with their wider communities and help shape Appalachia’s future.
