Storytelling Cafe: A Media and Storytelling Workshop
Thursday, September 22, 2011, 1:30–4 pm
Being an effective communicator is an essential skill that gives advocates for social change the tools to hone their story, challenge prevailing cultural narratives, and ultimately build stronger movements that can bring about change. The Storytelling Cafe (led by Lab Team member Omar Freilla and other members of the Latin American and Caribbean Community Center) introduces a story-based model that links traditional organizing techniques with new strategies and communication methods. Topics covered include identifying story types, creating and developing your story, using social media to disseminate your story, and pitching your story to the press.
