This webinar and workshop series is designed to better understand the importance of community grassroots storytelling with a focus on developing racial literacy and leadership through a storytelling lens. The webinar commences on Thursday 29th October 9:30 am-11.00, with two follow up workshops.
The Transformational Ethical Storytelling webinar and workshop series is based on the framework the Our Race team has developed over several years. This has been designed by storytellers and storytelling practitioners who draw on academic research and practical experience.
The premise of this theory and the practice associated with it, are to shift the balance of power of storytelling where it becomes person and community-centred. This allows for groups who are often marginalised to control their own stories, rather than play their part in a performative narrative.
Webinar: Thursday 29th October 9:30-11am. The webinar will include a presentation, storytelling and discussions on Transformational Ethical Storytelling. The first half will be delivered by facilitators, raising some pertinent questions and concepts. The second half will include interactive exercises which will allow participants to share their experiences and build their storytelling practices.
Workshop (2 dates): Tuesday 3rd November 9:30-11:30am or Thursday 5th November 2-4pm. The webinar will be followed by an interactive workshop the following week with two dates to choose from. The workshop is designed for participants to explore transformational ethical storytelling further, including beginning to develop a framework to support storytelling within participants’s communities and/or organisations.
This workshop is targeted at storytellers and storytelling practitioners who are involved in the design and development of stories and leaders who work with culturally diverse teams. The storytelling model we use takes a counterstorytelling approach and will benefit anyone who tells or coordinates stories of groups who are often stigmatised.
Roles we have identified who would most benefit from these workshops include:
- Facilitators of storytelling
- Community workers and managers
- Communications and marketing specialists and managers
- Managers working with culturally diverse teams
- Leaders with a focus on transformational anti-racism approaches
- Improve understanding into the powers and impacts of storytelling
- Identify and share best practices for transformational ethical storytelling
- Build participants’ knowledge and skills of creating and sharing stories ethically
- Build organisational awareness of how to better support community-centred storytelling
