About Luke Brawner

Hello Friends...

I believe the art of sharing people's stories in a compelling way has tremendous potential to do good in the world. So I've spent the last few years surrounding myself with great storytellers and conversationalists and developing a space for them to really do what they do so well. As the creative output of this community has grown since its inception, so has the vision for what it can become, as well as the cost (both time and money) of doing business.

I'm inviting you to invest, participate in, and receive from this growing neighborhood of storytellers. I'm asking you to buy in to the notion that storytelling is a valuable tool in the work of connecting ourselves to one another despite any differences that may otherwise divide us.

Why you should join the neighborhood:

  • You believe, as we do, in the value of pursuing deep human connection,
  • You believe, as we do, that every person has a story worth telling, and worth telling beautifully, and
  • You believe, as we do, in work that amplifies the voices and perspectives of those who have for far too long been underrepresented in society because of their race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status.

Your financial partnership will help cover the ongoing costs of production, post-production, new show development, gear maintenance, travel expenses, and so much more. Every dollar helps. Truly!

Thank you for your consideration, encouragement, support and belief in the work we're doing and the neighborhood that we're building. I hope that you find stories here that resonate deeply with your own, and that as you listen you find yourself a little more connected to the rest of humankind.

All my best,
Luke Brawner
