Activity 2: How Can We Tell Stories that Connect to Social Issues Effectively?  

(120 minutes)

 

Story Inc. (link)

 

“This two hour workshop is designed to enable participants to tell a personal story about a social issue that they are connected to and/or are passionate about. At the end, every participant will leave with the practical skills of storytelling, an ability to communicate a social issue to an audience, and a roadmap of how to tell their own story related to the social issue across which ever media platform they choose.”

The workshop instructions can be found here.

 

The workshop takes a game-based approach to unpacking basic elements of a story (Character, Setting, Plot, Conflict, Resolution) and asks participants to delve into stories they know before embarking on their own storytelling exercise.
