Story Caretaker Workshops (2024)

Event description

The telling of Stories can be a powerful tool for the communication of knowledge, and the building of community. It can also be an act of profound vulnerability, and may have impacts that are not immediately apparent. So what can we, as listeners, do to create a safe and supportive environment for Story Holders to tell their stories, and how can we ensure that we share them in a safe and ethical way?

This workshop will support organisations and Story Holder advocates to:

  • co-design safer spaces to create and tell consumer stories with respect, sensitivity, and appreciation of people’s lived experiences;
  • rethink how to tell stories more powerfully by placing the community at the centre;
  • develop processes and strategies to better reach audiences, benefitting the community.

Two facilitators from Our Race Community will take participants through the five principles of Transformational Ethical Story Telling (T.E.S.T.) framework. This introductory workshop will allow participants to understand how each principle can be applied and to determine which principles and actions need to be prioritised for each organisation’s Story Telling and community engagement processes. Key questions will be posed to allow participants to navigate the challenges faced when engaging with Story Holders.
