MPLS: Story Stitch Facilitator Training

  • Wells Fargo Room, Minneapolis Institute of Art 2400 3rd Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55404 United States (map)

In partnership with the Minneapolis Institute of Art's Center for Empathy and the Visual Arts, Green Card Voices is excited to offer the first-ever Story Stitch Facilitator Training. By sharing our expertise, we will prepare you to facilitate effective Story Stitch circles for your organization’s leadership retreat, networking conference, team gathering, community event, and more.

Story Stitch was co-designed in 2018 by the Green Card Voices team and a diverse group of Minneapolis community members. The goal was to build a connection between immigrants and their neighbors by telling stories, opening minds, and encouraging people to know one another. It is our hope that the card game will foster deeper conversations and generate a breakthrough in how immigrants are perceived, treated, and accepted.

At this day-long training, you’ll learn how to:
• Understand the conceptual components and philosophy behind Story Stitch by identifying how empathy is enhanced through story sharing;
• Set up a brave space for sharing stories by delivering clear instructions and effectively managing the reflective discussion; and
• Gain confidence in leading a reflective discussion by creating a strategy to facilitate a Story Stitch circle.

A limited number of scholarships are available. If interested, please fill out this short questionnaire:
