Storytelling: Stories for Society
During the past decade I have worked with talented experts to create a method for unleashing the transformational power of group story-making.
Together with colleagues In 2010 I founded Stories for Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving learning and communication, particularly among youth. Our method is useful for the discussion of the complexity that we face in the world in a way that is fun and accessible.
This initiative originated in my years of volunteer work in schools, which underscored the need for methods to infuse learning with the development of twenty-first century skills, and social/emotional development. Stories' Island Method emphasizes collaboration, curiosity, creativity and compassion.
Stories for Society provides training in its method and the dynamics of story-making overall, facilitates story-making groups, and promotes a collaborative network among like-minded actors. Stories for Society's work in Bosnia-Herzegovina underscored the relevance of its method to the emergence of democracy with content, and to envisioning an inclusive and humane society.
