Impact Story Lab Sydney

Incubating Impact Storytellers for a Better World

Are you seeking a community of storytellers who are helping to create a better narrative for the world?

Impact Story Lab Sydney could be your new home to connect, dream, and collaborate with other impact storytellers – people who use the art, science and technology of storytelling for a deeper purpose.

Situated in a City of Sydney-supported space just outside the city’s CBD, The Impact Story Lab is now ready to host you!

Our newly-fitted out space can host inclusive hybrid events and workshops, residencies for values-aligned individuals and organisations, and co-working. We’re also building a community of storytelling partners, ambassadors and collaborators, all of whom are collectively working to create new narratives and systemic change in Australia and across the world.

What’s the background here?

For over a decade, Digital Storytellers has been working with stories and storytellers in service of creating a better narrative for the world. In addition to our core skills in film-making and storytelling (including the workshops we’ve developed in both areas) training, we used the entrepreneurial know-how of social enterprise to both sustain ourselves, but also attain deep experience and knowledge in the business for good movement in Australia and overseas.

Throughout the whole journey, we always had an office to work from, but we never had a permanent home for ourselves and our community. That’s where the Impact Story Lab Sydney concept was born.

After all the disruption brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Sydney awarded a long-term accommodation grant to Digital Storytellers, situated at the William Street Creative Hub in Darlinghurst. We simultaneously secured a further grant with CreateNSW to build out studios and prepare for the delivery of hybrid and in-person events, workshops, and all forms of digital production.

With the completion of the fitout in late 2023, we are now ready to open up Impact Story Lab Sydney to our wider storytelling and impact communities, including many of the organisations who have trusted us to help them find, make and share their good work with the world.
