LCN Europe is proud to announce that it will be running a complete Public Narrative training on the 13-14 of February 2021. The training will be held over two days and will be online. Applications are open to organisations and individual activists alike. Applicants can apply individually or as a team of 5 participants.
After the training, participants will be able to apply the Public Narrative framework, including the story of self, us and now, plus how to combine all elements of story, to their own organising work. The training will focus on getting the participants ‘on the bike’ and practicing storytelling, as well as giving them a grounding in the conceptual framework of Public Narrative.
Outside the two-day training, we will be offering participants optional sessions, with special guests and coaching opportunities, to enrich the participants’ knowledge of Public Narrative from a variety of perspectives.
What you will learn
The training will give you a grounding in:
- how to craft your public narrative starting with your “story of self”;
- connecting your story to that of your community (story of us) to motivate commitment to a shared purpose and engage others in a call to action (story of now);
- how to increase your capacity to lead others using the public narrative framework, communicating stories that inspire mindful action.
To apply, participants should complete this form. Participants will be able to enroll as:
- teams of 5 people
This training will be available to both individuals and organisations. It is recommended that organisations enroll as teams of 5 people.
