New Narratives

“Once upon a time, a group of blind men heard that a strange animal, called an elephant, had been brought to the town, but none of them knew of its shape and form. One by one, they went to touch the animal in order to understand what it looked like. The first person, whose hand landed on the trunk, said "this animal is like a thick snake". Another who placed his hand upon its side said the elephant "looks like a wall". As for another person, whose hand was upon its leg, said the elephant is a pillar like a tree-trunk."

"We all have limited perceptions of reality based on our personal experience, education, and social surroundings. Stories are like small windows that may suddenly open our eyes to a new reality, and profoundly transform our beliefs and meaning of life. This, I believe, is what animates me throughout my projects and nourishes my passion for writing and creating stories.” Maroussia

Maroussia currently develops an anticipation and political fiction TV series aimed at exploring alternative visions for the future in Europe and, eventually, questioning ourselves on the world we wish for. She founded the production agency Impact Storytelling in 2016 after working several years as a reporter and policy consultant at the UN, European Commission and OECD. She published a first book in 2016 (Etre et devenir femme) and occasional opinion pieces such as Soyons réalistes, recommençons à rêverMessieurs, osons affronter le changement !Et si le nouveau monde n’était pas là où on le cherche ?

Impact Storytelling

Logo Impact Storytelling

Impact Storytelling is a production agency aimed at supporting and inspiring greater respect for people and the planet. Its mission derives from a profound belief in the power of stories to inspire change and broaden the boundaries of our personal and collective imagination. 

Since 2016, Impact Storytelling has produced over 40 videos and documentaries on a broad range of social and ecological issues both at local and international levels, always favoring a solutions-oriented approach. Some of its projects included a documentary on the stories of women all over the world subject to profound injustice who managed to change the course of their lives (Etre femme), a documentary on unemployed youngsters in Molenbeek reassessing their life purpose (Par-delà les limites), one on refugees arriving in Europe with a profound desire to help others like they were helped themselves on the way (Phoenix), as well as numerous web videos on the circular economy, transition movements, non-violent conflict resolutions, education and health initiatives.

Lunt Foundation vision

Society is shaped by culture. Culture is shaped by our beliefs. And our beliefs are shaped by the stories we hear and tell ourselves. Since the early ages of humanity, human beings have shared stories that helped them make sense of the world and live together under shared norms and values. In order to transform our society, we must therefore transform our culture and collective beliefs.

Our world is today confronted with urgent and interrelated challenges; ones that do not only require significant economic and political changes, but also a more profound change of mindset. It is therefore high time for new stories to emerge and counterbalance dominant voices and mainstream media. Only by a profound change of narrative will we be able to elevate our collective consciousness and, eventually, co-create a new future.

Lunt Foundation support

 

In 2019-2020, support from the Lunt foundation enables Maroussia to initiate the development of a large-scale fiction TV series project aimed at exploring alternative visions for the future in Europe, together with a team of script-writers and professionals from the film industry.
