The Impact of Visual Storytelling

Audra Mulkern (Founder, Female Farmer Project)
Madeline Puckette (Founder, Wine Folly)
Dame Hsiao-Ching Chou, moderator (Author, Chinese Soul Food)

Storytelling is a powerful way to share ideas and information and to connect and engage an audience. Coupling story with imagery can have an especially strong impact.
These two entrepreneurs use visual storytelling in different ways — one through compelling photography (and a documentary film in the works) to honor women in agriculture, the other with dynamic graphics, video, and illustration that demystifies the world of wine, encouraging exploration. Learn about the value of thinking creatively vis-a-vis visual storytelling, and pick up some tactics applicable to myriad communications needs.

Casting a Wider Net: The 12th Farmer-Fisher-Chef Connection

The Farmer-Fisher-Chef Connection (F2C2) brings regional food & beverage Producers (farmers, fishers, ranchers, food & beverage artisans, etc.) and Buyers (chefs, restaurateurs, caterers, institutional buyers, instructors, students, etc.) together for the industry’s biggest event in Washington. We will learn from each other, work together to continue to develop our region’s local food economy, network and enjoy the best lunch of the year.

About: F2C2 has gained a faithful following of return attendees while annually drawing in new food producers and chefs for a delicious and social day of doing business while learning from each other. Tracking surveys have consistently shown that the event generates at least $1 million in new sales in our local food economy each year. F2C2 showcases and connects the producers and buyers who care about local, sustainable and delicious.

Where: Bastyr University, just outside of Seattle in Kenmore, will host F2C2 again in 2018. In addition to having a beautiful campus and a closely aligned mission, Bastyr University will offer a much easier commute for many attendees and has ample, free parking on site with no height restrictions!

Registration is open, register today and please help us spread the word by “joining” the event on Facebook and sharing with friends and colleagues.
