NRCDV's FREE Storytelling Institute
The Power of Storytelling.
Can you remember a time when you were impacted by the power of a captivating story? Facts and numbers are easily dismissible and often disregarded, but compelling stories evoke emotions and propel listeners or readers to act! Stories honor diverse cultures, identities and lived experiences. They bring us back to the foundation of the domestic violence movement. The roots. The voices of survivors.

The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence's Storytelling Institute is a free live two-day, virtual training set to take place on August 11 and August 12, 12:00pm – 4:00pm (ET). This will be an amazing opportunity for individuals who seek to move their target audiences from facts and numbers to taking action, utilizing storytelling as a tool for social transformation. This interactive training will provide participants with a digital companion guide, along with strategies and frameworks to identify storytelling goals, build a story bank, develop storytellers within your organization and nurture a sustainable culture of powerful storytelling.

The Institute will be led by Mothyna James-Brightful. Affectionately known as Sister Mothyna, during her 16-year professional speaking career she has logged over 40,000 hours on stage. She has been described as “energetic, passionate and inspirational” by audiences. With four publications under her belt, she is the author of the Amazon Bestseller Engage Inspire Prevent: Strategies for Educating Teens on Sexual Violence.

By the end of this training, you will learn how to:
-Identify how to find stories to tell and build a story bank
-Build rapport and make emotional connections through effective storytelling
-Identify and develop internal storytellers in your organization to maximize their role as change agents
-Apply industry best practices and vetted frameworks to craft compelling stories
-Nurture a sustainable culture of powerful storytelling in your organization
