Activating your Inner Aesop: Developing and Sharing Passionate Stories with Impact

Thursday, May 17, 2018: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Greenway BC/HI (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
Storytelling allows us to move discussions of homelessness and health care towards discussions aimed at humanizing homelessness, building empathy and relationships, and developing solutions to the root causes of poverty and illness. This workshop will begin with a storytelling framework from the National Consumer Advisory Board's Storytelling Guide that teaches how to develop your story. The second part of this workshop will focus on ways to preserve and share those stories. We will cover a health centers’ partnership with Story Corps, a non-profit that archives stories in the Library of Congress, and their use of storytelling via websites and advocacy.
