Gender Tech Collective stories
From Gender and Tech Resources
|Title of the tutorial||Creating stories on collective responses|
|Kind of learning session||Gender and Tech, Skill sharing|
|Learning objectives||Constructing a group narrative around security and self care, to encourage participants to think about what collectives or organisations can do in the area of security.|
|Prerequisites|| Ideally, the facilitator should have taken part in this exercise at least once, to have an idea of what is expected.
Prepare a whole set of material : colored pencils, cardboards, etc.. to offer to each group if they need it.
|Methodology|| Divide the participants into small groups – 4 or 5 people, and ask them to create a real or fictitious story around security or self care. The format for presentation is a theatre piece, a 'fireside story', a drawing or comic strip – the most important part is that every member of the group is taking part in the storytelling.
Facilitators should encourage participants to ensure agency – we all have our own power, we face risks, but we have responses – and encourage these themes to be used in the stories we tell. Groups are given 45 minutes to come up with a short story to then perform back to the group as a whole.
|Number of facilitators involved||1|
