Storybored USA is a new web series designed to empower diverse youth and millennials to tell their stories through creative arts and media. Hosted by a 3D printed figure of show creator/writer, William D. Caballero, and set in a scaled-down replica of his studio, each episode explores various aspects of the creative process through interviews with emerging and established artists who serve as creative coaches, offering personal and practical advice. Caballero also looks at the lives and work of legendary artists, from Frida Kahlo to Beethoven to Lin-Manuel Miranda, showing how they were able to persevere and reframe the narrative. Each of the ten episodes are designed to encourage all diverse people to add their creative voices to the American story – serving as a reminder that if they don’t tell their stories, someone else will.
Storybored USA is a co-production of William D. Caballero and Latino Public Broadcasting, and is a presentation of WORLD Channel, in association with KQED. Major funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
