Dialogue Storytelling Tool

NCDD members are busy, and it can be hard to find the time to let your colleagues in on all the great projects you’ve been working on! Well, now you can report on your dialogue and deliberation projects and events here, and NCDD will do the work spreading the word.

We’ll share your story with our colleagues at the Kettering Foundation and at Participedia.net, and we may also feature it on the NCDD blog and/or Resource Center. Both Kettering and Participedia are interested in what you’ve got going on, and may follow up with you or even assign someone to gather more info about your dialogue and deliberation projects.

Please note that the Dialogue Storytelling Tool is designed to collect mini case studies of dialogue and deliberation in action. If you don’t have a specific case or story to share, but want to tell people generally about your organization, methodology or tool, we encourage you to add a listing to the NCDD Resource Center here.

Do your best to cover the who, what, when, where and why -- including details on the purpose of the program who/how many participated, and any outcomes you've identified.
  • Select as many as apply.
  • Were you the organizer / convenor? The primary facilitator? A sponsoring organization or funder? A participant in the dialogue? Something else, or some combination of roles?
  • Select all that apply.
  • Can you share any lessons learned from this project with your fellow pioneers in dialogue and deliberation?
  • Is there a website, online report, or video that people can check out if they'd like to learn more? Please tell us what's available and share a link. Also consider sharing a link to photo we could include on the NCDD website!
