Laika is a storytelling agency that seeks to uncover constructive stories across the globe. We look for people who have found meaning through setbacks, companies that have changed course, and for countries, cities or individuals that have found workable solutions to difficult conflicts.
The world of Laika
There are countless ways to look at the world involving new perspectives and surprising approaches utilizing fresh eyes. We believe this is necessary in today’s world. Audiences are tired of negative-critical journalism and victim narratives. In order to stand out in a world overloaded with information, we need to change the leading paradigms in storytelling. Instead of merely criticising the status quo and focussing on faults from the past, we must also explore solutions to the challenges we face and consider paths forward. That’s how we create Laikable stories. Stories for everyone—stories that connect us and bring a distant world closer.
