STORY FOR FOOD
an alternative economy based on stories
“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
How It Works
Right now we are collaborating with existing establishments (coffee shops, bookshops, ice-cream shops, cinemas etc, find all information here (LINK)), where our STORY INSTALLATION is waiting for you!
You want to share a story with us? Yes, please!
The story can be true or fictitious — or a mix of both. Any story, language, theme and duration is welcome, provided that it’s previously undocumented.
When we record your story, it becomes part of our story-archive, where the stories are displayed anonymously and with matching tags.
In exchange for sharing your story with us you’ll get a little „Thank You“ like chocolate, coffee or a reduced ticket.
When you offer a story, you agree to the SFF terms and conditions *
° We are interested in the stories only YOU can tell °
The Story Archive
Every recorded story becomes part of our story archive. The archive is thought for several occasions.
So first people have the chance to just come by and listen to stories of strangers. There’s a story catalogue with the matching tags, language and description of each story, so the listeners can choose one matching their mood.
Put on the headphones, choose a story and enjoy!
We also select some stories for our special events - of course only with the teller’s permission. Then we translate your story into food (FOODBACK), sweets (SWEETBACK), music (MUSICBACK), object (ARTBACK) or perfume (AROMABACK). In this way your story can travel from your memory or imagination to the inspiration and creation of someone else.
° We want to find out about the quality of our listening and see if it is possible to develop our listening skills °

The Story House
Our ultimate goal of STORY FOR FOOD is to become a story-house: a unique coffee shop in Europe where you can trade your story for food and drinks. It will be the home of our story archive, and it will host all sorts of story related events, bringing together story enthusiasts with artists, tellers with listeners.
° We wonder why we are eager to share personal stories with strangers °
