Remaking the Economy:

How to Change Our Stories about the Economy

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

2:00pm - 3:30pm ET

What are the stories that we need to tell to better understand our economy, and lay the groundwork for building a more inclusive, democratic world? Storytelling—the construction of spoken or written accounts of a series of events that we tell each other to understand our world—offers critical tools to build movements, upend myths that hold us back, and construct cultures that can sustain a democratic economy.

This webinar conversation, a coproduction of NPQ and the BLIS Collective, takes a deep look at how to use storytelling to advance transformative change.  Our panelists are:

Among the many questions the webinar will explore are the following:

  • What are the narrative roadblocks to building a more liberatory economy?
  • What myths are holding back racial and economic justice work?
  • What are new stories that need to be told?
  • How can one engage in narrative change work for the long haul?
  • What is the infrastructure that can advance narrative change work?
  • What are the connections between narrative work, policy, and culture?
  • How can people advance new stories about the economy in their own work?

Whether you’re a social movement activist, nonprofit leader, board member, or engaged in community-based organizing, this webinar will provide you with real-life examples and lessons learned that can inform your work in your own community.
