Empowering Community Action Through Inclusive Stories Meet Up
The power and importance of storytelling is not a new concept in organizing and social impact work. As we look at models of deep canvassing and narrative change, the ability to change hearts and minds often comes down to a compelling story and personal connection. But how can we reach people to scale and use mainstream media to equip everyday people with the stories and narratives needed to organize their friends, family members, and neighbors? Picture Motion believes that stories can change the world, and that it's everyday people who make sure that they do. During this networking, you'll have a chance to meet the team at Picture Motion and learn how they are bridging storytelling, social impact and online digital communities through their newest initiative, Citizen PicMo. It will be an opportunity to be in community with other storytellers and other impact professionals and build new partners for future projects.
