Storytelling helps social-change groups do better at everything that they do—enlist members, raise funds, take the pulse of their communities, change policy and behavior. So how do you tell and solicit better stories?
In this workshop, a panel of experts in social-justice storytelling will help two nonprofits think through that very question. Join us for a structured conversation about the many ways storytelling can be applied to your funder/grantee partnerships.
- How to improve your storytelling strategy
- How to understand and communicate the challenges in your work, and in your stories
- How to use stories to foster more participation in your organization’s work
*Each participant will receive a print copy of “Storytelling and Social Change,” the new second edition of the guide from Working Narratives.*
- Betsy Richards, Director of Creative Strategies and Public Programs, Opportunity Agenda
- Brett Davidson, Director, Media and Narratives, Public Health Program, Open Society Foundations
- Katy Rubin, Executive Director, Theatre of the Oppressed NYC
- Paul VanDeCarr (Moderator), Managing Director, Working Narratives; Author of the organization’s guide on “Storytelling and Social Change”
All interested funders.
