TREC Webinar | Action-Inspiring Storytelling: The Marshall Ganz Public Narrative Model

Thursday, October 3rd | 10:30 AM-12:00 PM Mountain Time

Presenters: Dušan Stojičić, Harvard University teaching fellow and Kristi Chester Vance, TREC Associate

In a world full of overflowing inboxes and overwhelmed minds, telling stories that motivate peoples’ heads, hearts, and hands is more important than ever. Hone your storytelling skills with TREC Associate Kristi Chester Vance and Harvard University teaching fellow Dušan Stojičić, who will train participants in the Public Narrative storytelling model created by Marshall Ganz, legendary organizer and Harvard Kennedy School senior lecturer. Ganz’s organizing strategy and storytelling model gained prominence during President Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign—and is held by many as one of the most successful grassroots organizing initiatives in recent memory.

The Public Narrative model focuses on three foundational elements: the story of self, the story of us, and the story of now. Participants will walk away from this session with a foundational understanding of the model, as well as the opportunity to practice it in small groups.
