Story

In January 2010, a group of students from the University of British Columbia Community Psychology Program embarked on a community learning experience to explore ideas that contribute to our ability to create community.

Creating community with stories is one of the ideas the students explored, – creating community by providing people with the opportunity to tell their stories, create connections, and increase understanding and appreciation for the people who contribute to and create the community.

www.creatingcommunitywithstories.com is a community communication centre where people can contribute their stories and stories about their community to create connections and increase our understanding of the role of story telling in creating community and the contribution of stories to creative community development.
