Telling your Story: Crafting an Impactful Narrative Antigonish
November 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Every day the Community Impact Sector is improving lives and affecting change. There has been no shortage of challenges faced by our communities and the sector. Impact organizations have stepped up in big ways to provide care, support, and resources. Through a global pandemic, social injustices, and dangerous hurricanes (just to name a few!), our sector has been working behind the scenes – but what if we collectively and boldly told these stories of impact and positive change? How powerful would that be?
This fall, we’re eager to be in communities around the province to hear your stories and share skills for communicating your organization’s impact! The IONS team will be hosting and facilitating our storytelling workshop, designed to help your organization amplify its voice, build a narrative that resonates, and ultimately – together, to change the narrative of the Community Impact Sector through the power of telling our stories.
Telling Your Story: Crafting an Impactful Narrative
Often storytelling feels out of reach. We think of the creatives, the videographers, writers, and the artists. But storytelling is a communications tool that we can all leverage within the sector. This in-person workshop is an introduction to storytelling and for people, organizations, and communities. Learn about the stories you can tell, the different ways of telling stories, and the many ways to connect with an audience to have your stories heard. You’ll have a chance to reflect on your own storytelling, leverage your strengths, practice storytelling, and build confidence to tell stories that will connect with people and promote action.
This workshop is for you if…
- You’ve got a story to tell, but you don’t know where to start
- You’re craving in-person, collaborative learning with peers in your community
- You need a roadmap for crafting a story that furthers your impact
- You are in the ‘business’ of changing hearts and minds – of funders, policy makers, stakeholders, or community
- You want to inspire action or engagement
- You want to learn the building blocks of an effective story
Come connect with us and your community for a session of sharing, learning, and collaborating. Light breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be provided. There is no cost to your organization. Once registered, additional information will be shared about the venue, timing, catering, and COVID-19 protocols.
