Interested in learning how you can incorporate storytelling into your campaign strategy?
This workshop, which was developed from the writings of union organizer Marshall Ganz, and Organize BC’s guide titled “Organizing: People, Power, Change”, will explore the power of storytelling as a tool for building momentum in community based campaigns.
We will be discussing the basics of organizing, why we tell stories, the key elements of an effective story, and how to build a powerful public narrative for your campaign or organization.
