Quick Overview

Can narrative practices be used to respond to injustice and social suffering?

Can they spark and sustain social action?

In response to these questions, this book offers stories from Australia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Turkey, Kurdistan, Myanmar, Spain, and West Papua. Along the way, David Denborough brings new thinking tools to the field of narrative practice by drawing on the writings of feminist economists, narrative media scholars, social movement theorists and others. This book introduces new concepts concepts such as 'unexpected solidarities' and expands on existing concepts such as 'enabling people to speak through us not just to us'. It also traces histories - of collective narrative practice in general and the Tree of Life narrative approach in particular - to assist practitioners in diverse contexts to continue to invent, diversify and democratise the field of narrative practice.

David Denborough is a community worker, writer, songwriter and teacher at Dulwich Centre. He also coordinates the Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work at the University of Melbourne.
