Hollywood and Storytelling In a Divided America
The Center for Entertainment & Civic Health (CFECH) is dedicated to harnessing the power of storytelling and entertainment to bridge America’s divides. We explore the impact of entertainment media on polarization and societal cohesion, and promote the creation of content that fosters civic health and democratic norms. This free half-day virtual event will bring together content creators, entertainment executives, and experts from academia and leading nonprofit organizations for a first-of-its-kind exploration of the question: Can Popular Entertainment Save a Fracturing America? Learn about concrete narrative strategies and successful case studies from some of Hollywood’s most recognizable names in TV and film.
