Nonprofit digital storytellingStorytelling in the Digital Age: Strategies to Build Your Movement & Engage Your Supporters

While the power and the principles of great storytelling have not changed since humans began to communicate, the landscape in which to tell stories certainly has. Digital technologies have fundamentally changed the way people research, consume, and share information. Virtual reality tools are disrupting traditional nonprofit storytelling, bringing donors and stakeholders directly inside the work of organizations.

The question remains – how can we collect, craft, and share these stories in order to take our audience from passive to active and create the maximum impact? Author and nonprofit storytelling expert Julia Campbell will walk you through the secrets to nonprofit storytelling success in the digital age, based on her bestselling book for nonprofits.

Mission-Driven Storytelling for Social Change 

Storytelling is the fuel in the marketing and fundraising engine of the modern nonprofit. Great storytelling does more than communicate a message; it gets at the heart of how humans process information. Popular stories and narratives play a large role in how we see the world.  Beyond raising money and increasing visibility, how can storytelling be used to create real social change? Mission-driven storytelling has the potential to change hearts and minds around complex, difficult issues. All nonprofit professionals and volunteers need to start thinking of themselves as storytellers if they want to convert their stakeholders from passive participants to passionate advocates.   

In this talk, digital storytelling expert Julia Campbell will share some of most powerful ways that storytelling can be used to challenge cultural stereotypes, connect with diverse audiences, and inspire people to take action.

Millennials, or Gen Y, are poised to take the world by storm. Boomers may be big spenders, but their kids will be the largest consumer generation in history. Young people aged 17-34 today will spend more than $200 billion annually starting in 2018, and $10 trillion in their lifetimes. Where does charitable giving fit into the Millennial landscape, and how can your nonprofit start building relationships with this generation? If you don’t know how to reach or approach Millennials and the younger generations, let alone get them involved with your cause, then this workshop is for you.
