Overview

Whether you're a photographer, filmmaker, podcaster or writer, you are uniquely qualified to move hearts and minds. Increasingly, groups advocating for social change are turning to creative sector professionals to help reshape attitudes and behaviours and reframe conversations around issues that matter. 

Through case studies, applied exercises and personal reflection, this workshop will help you: 

  • Think strategically about how storytelling can be leveraged to make positive change in the world.
  • Approach story research and development systematically to create richer, more authentic and penetrating narratives. 
  • Practice putting together elements of an impact campaign to sharpen your skills for driving positive change through creative storytelling.
