  11. 11. Narrative + Social Action Co-designing narrative with social action is a challenging exercise in achieving simple, engaging stories that yet capture nuance, complexity, and multiple perspectives. In any social change campaign where you co-design narrative with action to create positive impact in a community, ask yourself if your campaign meets these three conditions: + Respect + Relevance + Resonance
  12. 12. Narrative + Social Action + Respect + Relevance + Resonance + Is your project based on respect for the communities with which you are working? + Have you co-designed your project with your communities, or have you built a communitycentered strategy? +Does your project engender respect for the dignity and integrity of those communities? + If working with vulnerable populations, such as youth, elderly, dissident, conflict/postconflict, or post-disaster populations, have you respected privacy, identity, and security? + Does your project respect the perspectives and needs of your audience, participants, and stakeholders?
  13. 13. Narrative + Social Action + Respect + Relevance + Resonance + Have you posed the issues in your project in a way that is relevant to the communities with which you’re working? + Are you raising awareness or creating engagement only? If so, is there a way to frame your narrative that leads to actionable information on community-centered solutions and partnerships? + Are your engagement and participation techniques linked to your communities through a relevant and explicable narrative thread? + Are your solutions, or the representation of solutions, relevant to the communities with which you’re working?
  14. 14. Narrative + Social Action + Respect + Relevance + Resonance + Does your project’s framing resonate with your communities’ culture and identity? + Does your project incorporate your communities’ perspective on their perceived challenges? + Does your project incorporate your communities’ perspectives on potential solutions? + Is your project’s narrative accessible yet framed to capture multiple perspectives, nuance, and complexity? + Have you told a human story, made the humanity of the challenge visible, and represented your subjects as individuals?
