Narrative the Future We Want to Create:
Storytelling As Social Change
"How can story serve as a catalyst for social change? How can we work together within our groups and organizations to 'write' new possibilities for our future? In this workshop, we will explore the power of narrative to shape our perception and our future. We will consider storytelling conventions and the relationship between story and power. Participants will leave with a process and some tools to amplify stories within their own communities to create the change they want to see happen."
