The Power of Stories. A Workshop to Build Skills and Capacity to Better Tell and Share Our Stories of Action and Change.

Every person, neighbourhood, organisation and community has great stories to tell! Stories have become an increasingly important tool for reflecting on, understanding and communicating what’s happening in the world around us. Told well, stories have the potential to capture hearts and minds, and engage others in the change and possibilities we see.

You’re invited to be part of “The Power of Story and Putting Stories to Work” with leading international story teller Moya Sayer-Jones.

What participants will learn about:

• the importance of stories to communities, neighbourhoods and organisations

• the difference between a case study, a testimonial and a story

• the elements of a good story, and how to tell one

• how to develop story cultures

• examples of stories that have changed hearts and minds

• listening deeply, and how to gather stories

• recording the stories that others tell

• the use of story stems, and the story circle process

• how to use stories for evaluation, engagement, learning and development

• how to manage ethical issues when working with stories.

Tautoko-Neighbourhood Connections have received funding from Te Pou to cover Moya’s workshop and are offering places to other organisations. They would like to suggest that people attending make a Koha to Volunteer Nelson who will assist with workshop associated costs and evaluation following the workshop:

• Central/Local government/Business $50

•Community organisations/Volunteers $25

Morning tea provided, bring a sandwich for lunch!
