With this grant, we are uncovering how to increase the impact of campaigns, messaging and public outreach of peacebuilders and civic activists through more savvy understanding of the ways we can contribute to shifting public narratives. With USIP support, we are:
- Designing a Narratives for Peace Resource Guide that presents advice and lessons learned from various sectors and professionals on what works and what doesn’t in combatting divisive narratives of intolerance and fear.
- Convening a series of Narratives for Peace events to bring Creatives together with Peacebuilders to spur exchange, partnerships and opportunities for on-going collective action to promote positive public narratives.
- Creating the infrastructure for a Platform to serve as a virtual receptacle for resources on narratives, to capture continual learning and adaptation of the Narratives for Peace Resource Guide; and, to create opportunities for on-going collaboration amongst different professions to engage together and find ways to build on each other’s talents and networks.
