Storytelling is a uniquely versatile tool for personal growth and community mobilization whether in a professional, personal, or pedagogical setting.
We partner with organizations who want to use storytelling as the vehicle for positive change for staff, students, clients, or organizational mission. Both the focus and the scheduling of the workshop can been designed to fit the individual needs of your organization.
Often individuals interested in our Customized Workshops will start by taking a Public Workshop to better understand of how best to partner with us and adapt our methodology to serve their program goals.
We believe in the power of story: the power to connect people through telling and deep listening; the power to communicate the subtlety and complexity of our human stories; the power to change communities.
We will come to your organization and consult with your team to design a program that suits your organizational needs, your program goals, and your particular environment. We also believe that even those stories that are hard to access and sometimes hard to hear are important for compassionate community action.
We are interested in consulting with marginalized and underfunded organizations and are ready to lend our support to researching avenues for funding, building community connections, and creatively aligning resources so as to enable a digital storytelling project in all sectors of our city.
