Effective Storytelling is the cornerstone of making change. At this year’s conference, “Many Hands, Many Voices” the focus is on how cross-sectoral collaboration strengthens our communities. A defining feature of the conference is the power of story – the stories we tell, and those we don’t tell. This event will showcase the collaborations that have made a difference in Nova Scotia’s development.
The Call: As a way of inspiring our work together, we seek to host a total of nine stories from across the province that illustrate cross-sectoral collaborations that have had social and/or economic impact.
Storytelling Format: Each of the nine stories selected will be featured in the first concurrent breakout session on Tuesday, October 3rd. Each session will be approximately 45-50 minutes, 20 minute maximum story, Q&A, and harvest. Each workshop will be hosted by a facilitator and each story and discussion will be harvested for sharing. Stories must include the following principles:
• Multiple collaborators of which at least one is Nova Scotia based.
• Must highlight the process of collaborating, both the struggles and the keys to success.
• Must discuss the impact of collaborating on the social and/or economic outcome.
• Must touch on one or more of the conference themes (click link below for more information). Submission deadline: Responses to this call for conference storytellers are due no later than midnight on Monday, June 19th, 2017.
