Assessing Technology’s Role in Narrative
The proliferation of technology to monitor, understand and intervene in public conversation has great potential to accelerate narrative change efforts. But the landscape is vast and specialized, and there is little transparency between the technology and narrative change fields. Organizations and practitioners are using new tools but rarely have the capacity to share access, invest in further development, and identify new opportunities.
Narrative Initiative, in partnership with Civic Hall, is convening funders, practitioners, and technology companies to advance collaboration and new interventions. We seek to understand not only what the appetite is for new technology solutions, but also whether collaborations between technology developers and narrative change practitioners can increase the capacity of the field.
