Story X Mission
Story X seeks to improve the resilience of the community members in the Western Addition of San Francisco through the power of story. We believe that we can harness our passion for craft and story and point it towards the amazing people of the Western Addition and the African American Arts and Cultural Complex (AAACC), who would derive a real and tangible benefit from having their stories told.
About Story X
The Western Addition has found itself battered by the effects of development and gentrification. What was once a thriving black community and hub of culture has been reduced to a shell of its former self. This has left a negative effect on the people who still reside there, especiall the creative community.
Our approach is to engage with the artists and creative organizations within the community and learn about what they do and what their struggle is. Then we plan to use our craft to tell their stories through different mediums and electrify them with the help of social media. The intention is to make a campaign with storytelling at its center, that gives voice to the artists and creative community in the Western Addition. The ideal goal is to enable the AAACC to harness the power of social media and storytelling to help artists and make a truer, deeper connection with the community at large.
