IMAGINE NATION – STORY 2011
I’ll never forget the phone call. I was sitting in the parking lot of a Christian bookstore (which happens once about every other year or so…).
“Scott….I’ve got an idea.”
On the other end was my friend, Ben Arment. Ben was calling to share his dream of creating a new conference experience for creatives that he was going to be calling STORY. Not only that, but he wanted to bring the conference to the Chicago area and….he wanted me to be a part of it.
This September (15&16) will mark three years since the beginning of STORY. And once again, I am really honored to be a part of what has become, in my opinion, one of the most unique conference experiences I’ve ever been a part of.
If you were to ask Ben what the purpose of STORY is, he’d tell you, “STORY is fuel for the creative class.” He’s right. Whether you create art for a living or even just wish you were more creative, STORY is an experience that will inspire your creativity and affirm the artisty that is dying to make its way to the blank canvases of your life.
