What is narrative responsibility?

An umbrella term converges the dynamics of power, ownership, accountability, control and democratisation involved in storytelling. A new approach to support cultural, civic and social organisations in working with stories inclusively.

Stories are powerful vehicles for building bridges between people and finding an understanding, a shared sense of things, facts and experiences. It is worth investigating how they are told, employed and transferred in Europe.

Narrative Accountability in Cultural and Community Settings is a strategic partnership for innovation in the field of Vocational Education and Training (VET) born to design a shared, European practice to facilitate cultural, civic and social organisations to work with narratives – from digital storytelling to oral histories – in a responsible, equitable and inclusive way.

Moral truths are best expressed in the form of a story – they allow us to understand each person’s life as a complex narrative of human effort in a world full of obstacles.

Martha Nussbaum, 2011

The main phases of the project:

  • Mapping the key storytelling practices in Europe and defining guidelines for adopting a narrative accountability approach;
  • Delivering joint training courses to develop a European community of fair and inclusive storytellers;
  • Defining of tools for Vocational Education and Training (VET) professionals to support them in the delivery of their educational offer;
  • Promoting multiplier events to share results with organisations, researchers and policymakers.
