Countering populist narratives and putting diversity and inclusion at the centre of public discourse is a very difficult task. Join us as we analyse the landscape of migration narratives in recent years and walk through the steps to build a campaign on narrative change in the terrain of migration.

Narrative Lab

This training is being run as part of CILD’s Narrative Lab, a capacity-building gateway empowering progressive civil society organisations to activate narrative change towards structural change. The Narrative Lab is a resource, connection and collaboration hub, geared towards expertly assisting civil society organisations to:

CREATE & PUSH messages and stories of humanity, hope and opportunity;

CONFRONT & COUNTERACT negative narratives which aim to undermine social cohesion;

SEEK STRATEGIC ALIGNMENT to communicate more persuasively across diverse stakeholders groups;

CENTRE INCLUSION & REPRESENTATION at the heart of the creation of persuasive communications;

EXPAND & ENRICH discourse by uplifting emerging voices and those that go unheard.
