Dignified Storytelling | Placing Human Dignity at the Heart of Storytelling
Storytelling is a powerful tool that helps shape narratives and deﬁne cultures. It can help foster empathy and connection, serving as an important tool for promoting tolerance and inclusivity. Tolerance and inclusivity are core pillars of Digniﬁed Storytelling and its 10 Principles. Digniﬁed Storytelling unites the voices of content makers, editors, journalists, photographers, ﬁlmmakers, storytellers, and contributors and equip them with the awareness and hands-on knowledge that will enable them to capture moments and tell stories without compromising human dignity. Moderated by Getty Images, this session features 11year-old published author, Diaco Taaeb; Surinamese actor, writer and ﬁlmmaker, Ivan Tai-Apin; Friendship’s Founder and Executive Director, Runa Khan; and Disability Empowerment Consultant Fatma Al Jassim. In addition, excerpts of two ﬁlms focused on tolerance and inclusivity will be shared with the audience.
