The Potency of Story

Duncan Campbell
November 2018

For most of us stories are an essential part of our individual and collective identity. The stories we tell about ourselves, the stories other people tell about us, define us. You could say they are us. What does it mean to frame our life or other lives and situations like this - as an unfolding story moving towards resolution? What does it mean to make the chaos of our experience cohere into a single good story? Is it essential to be in possession of a full and explicit narrative to develop as a person or as a group? Participants will discuss and explore these issues in relation to their own work and practices.
