Andrew Slack, Creator, Co-founder, and Executive Director, The Harry Potter Alliance presented an enormously quote-able, tweet-able presentation on “Using Story to Change the Story of Our World” based on his experience founding the Harry Potter Alliance and using the fandom to help social causes. Other takeaways were:
"you’re not just a wave, you’re a part of the whole ocean"
"the court of public opinion is more important then the actual court"
"The towers of Tower Records have fallen"
"Finding where the energy is in the culture and then moving that energy to create action in the world, that’s "Cultural Acupuncture."
