The Science of Transportive Storytelling

Why is it that some shows have the ability to transport us into another world, while others leave us cold and critical? What do the scientists at the Pentagon know about storytelling that you as an artist could hack for good rather than… well, let’s say “political”? Is there a science to compelling storytelling? A set of elements and a structure that are irresistible to the human mind?

Join renowned storyteller and communications consultant Simon Oats as he shares amazing insights on how to craft your stories to engage the imaginative centres of the brain and the neurochemistry of empathy.
