Max will share the story of his journey as an artist, and fumble around in an effort to connect the varying dots of his strange career. It will be entertaining, you will feel something, and you'll be glad you came. 



Max Stossel is an award winning poet, filmmaker and speaker, named by Forbes as one of the best storytellers of the year. Spanning across five continents, from Lincoln Center in NY to the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, Max’s performances have been described as mind-expanding, profound, and hilarious all at once. His one-man show “Words That Move” (pre-covid) was selling out theaters all over the US. His work has been translated to fourteen languages, won multiple film festivals, and has been viewed over 20 million times online.  

Max is also the Youth & Education advisor for the Center for Humane Technology (The org from The Social Dilemma on Netflix) and has spent the past 5 years speaking with 100,000+ students and parents about social media's impact on their lives, and creating resources to help manage that impact.
