Two Workshops to find out more on Friday 16th July at the Bond, Fazeley Street, Birmingham.

10.30-12.30pm and repeated at 1.30-4.30pm

It has been said that the shortest path between a human being and the truth…Is a story. Why is it that with all the money spent on collecting and displaying data relating to the success of public services, the everyday stories people tell of how public services work receive relatively little attention?

Chamberlain Forum has developed a technique for listening critically to stories; using storytelling in policy evaluation and development.  It is called the ‘Structured Dialogue Method’ (SDM).

Come along to one of the workshops to find out about:

  • Why stories are important
  • How SDM works
  • How it can be used to listen critically
  • SDM in practice in Birmingham

To see how the method works in practice, take a look at how it has been used in Birmingham to learn about Asset Transfer
