What are your intentions in reading this?

It all built the market, I believed that part of Narrate’s USP was the perspective I brought to the work – and that at worst it meant that I had a spur to continue to be innovative and coming up with the next thing to keep ahead of the magpies. … I say this, not to accuse, but to give voice to a disquiet I have in sharing some of the practice I’ve developed – I want to talk about some elements I’ve found really useful in SenseMaker® – but I find I’m reluctant to share and that I am disappointed to find myself being guarded and considering my words and thoughts more carefully.

The App is landing – collecting stories though apps in Rwanda

We’re preparing for a bigger project later in the year, but the past few days have been getting some of the team up to speed and testing how we’re going to gather the narratives. Field collection of narrative is always fun – we were doing it on paper in Bangladesh before Christmas and previous projects have seen it done via websites, voice recorders and laptops.
