Empowering Media That Matters

Story Movements is a CMSI project that curates and presents research and case studies about the role of narrative in contemporary movements for social justice -- across platforms and genres of civic media storytelling. From documentary film to investigative journalism to virtual reality to participatory storytelling to persuasive gaming to photography, Story Movements examines and captures the current and future-looking moment in story-led demands for social change.

Story Movements launched in 2016 with an inaugural convening by the same name.
