Storytelling for Co-production

Added by Olivia under General Chat

Storytelling for Co-production event summary

Last week the London Co-production Practitioners Network met for a session hosted by Latimer Creative Media where together they developed personal Co-production Stories and Stories of Self. Participants experimented with social media, tweeted #MyCoProStoryand made short film clips.

"We learned that...

  • Stories help communicate values to people by engaging their emotions
  • Stories can motivate others to act with us - in ways that only providing a laundry list of actions or strategies cannot
  • Social media can be used to communicate stories in bite size chunks.

The Storify for the event is so good, you almost feel like you are there >>>> https://storify.com/mycoprostory/mycoprostory"
