How do we make sense of the world?
The stories we tell and the stories we listen to shape our experience of the world…
At Narativ we recognise the power of storytelling as a tool for reflection and insight, as well as being the best way to connect and communicate. And for us listening always comes first. Listening is generative - it creates the space for words to be spoken.
Everybody has a story. This is a simple idea, yet experientially it is profound. How can we harness the power of both our listening and our stories to change the world we live in?
Narativ’s work is about creating spaces where people can explore stories from their lives: for advocacy, for leadership, for art - to connect, influence and inspire.

What’s your story?
Listen in to Narativ directors Dan Milne and Jane Nash talk about personal, cultural and global events through the lens of listening and storytelling, exploring how these very human skills can change us and our world.
You’ll also find ‘What Happened’, a thread of true stories on our podcast channel and coming soon 'Original’ a new series with Dan & Jane in conversation with a selection of fascinating guests.
Narativ works with organisations and individuals but we also hold open One Day Workshops and Storytelling Circles throughout the year for anyone to experience the Narativ Method.
If you work for an organisation that would benefit from learning to listen and tell stories, this is a great way to introduce yourself and your colleagues to what we do.

Media & Education
"The workshop is beautifully paced and elegantly facilitated. But the real magic, is what happens afterwards. How this work finds a way into your everyday life both professionally and personally. I cannot think of any industry sector that would not benefit from this important work. "
"The main benefit for participants is their own sense of power. The strength they find in vulnerability and being really open when they share personal stories. Some people had tears in their eyes. They felt the impact their story had on others."
