The Power of Story - Dr. Brendan Stone - TEDxSheffield

Brendan Stone is a Senior Academic Fellow at The University of Sheffield. Much of his work focuses on themes of wellbeing, communities, social and cultural capital, and the development of creative approaches to understand and combat social exclusion. He has considerable experience in working with people who have longstanding mental health problems; his 'Storying Sheffield' project attempts to empower individuals to renegotiate the stories which define them. Brendan's work is based around the idea of the 'porous university', in which barriers to access are carefully removed to foster a mutually productive exchange with the city and the wider region.TEDxSheffield is operated under a license from TED Conferences LLC held by @herbkim. In 2011, it was co-curated by @chrisdymond, held at the Showroom Cinema and supported by Creative Sheffield.
