Our Stories, Our World: A community-driven podcast series

As part of an innovative collaboration between two nonprofits focused on narrative change and community building, Chicago youth produce “Our Stories, Our World,” a series of community-centered narratives about public safety, public health and public education.

The collaboration connects Chicago’s own Public Narrative, a longtime advocate for broader, more accurate and more authentic community representation in media, and A Picture’s Worth, a nonprofit focused on strengths-based storytelling for community change. To be released in 2021, the complementary nonprofits’ first project will combine audio stories and photography to create a series of citizen-centered podcasts that add depth and context to stories about Public Narrative’s three thematic pillars: public safety, public health and public education.
