Spectrum Academy

Spectrum Academy

A storytelling workshop for systems change.

Think outside the box when it comes to personal storytelling and practice new tools for community building and civic advocacy with a storytelling exercise designed to build critical thinking around how we relate to the world around us.

Bring the Workshop to Your Community

The Spectrum Academy workshop leads participants through an interactive storytelling activity that transitions into a systems thinking discussion. Participants will draw a "map" of their life based on the communities they have been connected to at different stages in their lives. In pairs, they'll use these maps to craft personal stories that connect with their pair partner. Coming back together, we'll discuss the commonalities we found and use that as a launching point to examine the group’s positioning and leverage to create systems change.
