"The news" is an invaluable part of how we understand and relate to the world. But news is only one kind of storytelling, only one way to make sense of the world. There are other powerful and meaningful forms of storytelling practiced by artists  by singers, poets, dancers and more  that can help us to make a different kind of sense out of our shared experiences.
