Storytelling for Social Change Webinar

This webinar provides an introduction to Voice of Witness, our oral history methodology, and the use of first-person storytelling to amplify the voices of people impacted by injustice. We explore the power of personal narrative as a storytelling format and discuss key elements of the oral history process, including best practices in ethical interviewing and project creation. We offer this webinar live annually. The next one is on May 21, 2024.

Oral History Skills and Ethics Workshop Series

VOW adapted our oral history approach into a three-part workshop series for anyone seeking to use first-person storytelling to advance a project or mission. These trainings help you or your organization reflect on best practices, gain skills, and plan a storytelling project to amplify community voices. VOW staff and guest facilitators discuss key processes and tips on how to create impactful narratives.

We host these workshops annually, and the next series will take place in summer 2024.
