RESOURCES ON STORIES AND SOCIAL CHANGE

I'm finishing up work on a guide called "Storytelling and Social Change," aimed at grantmakers but useful for activists and media-makers, too. I'll post here when it's done.

In the meantime, here are a few recent conference sessions or webinars on the same topic.

From last month's National Conference on Media Reform comes two recorded sessions. One is called simply "Storytelling Strategies for Social Change," featuring presenters from the workers' rights, anti-war, anti-poverty and immigrant justice movements. Another session is on "Shifting Culture Through Storytelling, Media Making, and Collaboration." 

And from the Ashoka Future Forum comes a webinar on "Storytelling for Movement Building," featuring two special guests from the fields of health and domestic violence prevention, and hosted by Ashoka fellow Kara Andrade, a journalist, photographer and storyteller, and co-founder of HablaCentro.
