For Those Who Want To Tell Better Stories #7 | Consultation, Hwyl, & Budgets

A few chosen narrative examples, to uncover forms, inspire the soul and stir the creative spirits.

This is what happens when you ask a Welsh actor of pedigree to improvise what he would say to a Welsh football side ahead of the World Cup to inspire them. Not just does this but so full of ‘hwyl’ (a Welsh word for heart and ). Read about the backstory here.

In the UK there is recently a new (now gone) Prime Minister (which only 0.3% of the UK electorate voted for) and (now gone) Chancellor who together announced a mini-budget which could be deadly (the latter of which attended a same-day champagne reception with hedge fund managers).

All offered up to inspire, teach and make you smile / think.
