Lunch & Learn : Storytelling with community

Applying ethical co-design principles in collaborative storytelling, with Zenaida Beatson and Anna Jackson

Friday 20 September 12-1pm

A free lunchtime session exploring ethics and care when storytelling with others. 



About this event

Stories of lived experience can be incredibly powerful and impactful, helping us to understand issues and experiences firsthand. Many organisations and advocacy groups are eager to involve community in storytelling, either by commissioning case studies or through ‘user-generated’ stories. But how can we do this with care and authenticity?

What to expect

We’ll explore some of the sticky questions people have about storytelling with others, share our own experiences and offer some useful tools and resources.

We want to use these lunchtime sessions to build community as well as learn, so we’ll create space to connect with others in small groups for brief discussion and reflection and we’ll finish the session with a Q & A.
