Courageous conversations with bold humans (from the most creative little capital in the world).
Shadoe Stone, Creative Director + Storyteller, five and dime.
Shadoe is interested in stories. The ones that shape us, the ones that defy us, and the ones that tickle us. She runs a storytelling agency, five and dime, on a mission to reshape our beloved narratives into ones that are more inclusive, regenerative and consider what it means to be fully human. Warts and all.
Having started her career in design, then studying and working in marketing and comms, and now channeling her energy into narrative co-design and production, Shadoe is happiest when listening to others, and leaning into the discomfort so that she may grow and learn to be a better ally for positive outcomes – for our tangata and our taiao.
