Join us for the 'Shape of Stories.' These programs are part of a series by Coping Cafe, providing artistic tools to help people manage life changes.
We will explore narratives, their impact, and how stories influence societal opinions. How do our personal stories connect to larger stories? How do we know what is true? How do we know what is ethical and "safe"? How can we use narratives to shape a better world?
Interviews on zoom include interactive Q&A.
July 7th- Special Guest Dr. Betty Sue Flowers advises think tanks on future scenarios. Previously she was Director of the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library.

Part of coping is being able to find smart, honest, creative people who can help us to better understand ourselves and our role in the world. Mentoring will also be discussed.
