Global Design and Social Impact Project, ‘What is Your Story?’ Launch

what is your story   February 2019 TORONTO – ‘What is Your Story?’ a global social impact and design project makes its American premiere February 23rd at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA, 1315 Peachtree St NE).

 The interactive installation joins MODA’s upcoming, ‘Pasione Italiano: Art of Espresso’ exhibit.


Designed by Spark Corps and Orange Sparkle Ball, in collaboration with  BooknBrunch, ‘What is Your Story?’’ is a touching look at struggles and secrets hidden deep within ourselves and our peers; and how these unsaid stories connect us all more than we realize.


There are very few burdens greater than carrying the weight of an untold story. People constantly have trouble finding their voice and sharing their story for fear of being judged. Books, are the silent storyteller. ‘What is Your Story?’ is made up of anonymous, handwritten stories displayed in used books—and it gives viewers the opportunity to respond to these stories by sending a supportive message via postcard. This back and forth interaction creates a connection and an understanding of solidarity. The person who initially shared their story ends up receiving responses for it, indicating that their voice was finally heard.

The installation made an appearance at DesignTO in January 2019 and is now on its way to Atlanta. ‘What is Your Story?’ is on the road to collect even more anonymous stories with a series of workshops centered around writing and sharing, as well as the opportunity for MODA visitors to fill out and display their own stories while the exhibit is open.

‘What is Your Story?’ plans to travel across US cities as well as additional global locations in Canada and Colombia. The mission is to create an impact that unites people in their struggles, putting an end to the isolation that comes with feeling misunderstood.

Those unable to participate in ‘What is Your Story’ at MODA can interact with the project virtually by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and visiting What_is Your Story on Instagram.
