Institute For Living Story

Catalyzing Learning Through Arts and Community Engagement
Creative expression and storytelling are powerful pathways to learning and waking up. They can be a catalyst for connection and positive change, inspiring open and respectful dialog and empowering our community.

The Institute for Living Story offers a series of programs and research initiatives that use arts and engagement as a vehicle to enliven open and respectful conversation and deep listening, nurture meaningful intergenerational exchange and stimulate meaningful collaborations and partnerships. It intentionally involves diverse constituencies in collaborative, art and story based work  and holds a deep value around reciprocity  between  artist, individuals, organizations and communities.

Institute for Living Story currently offers the following ongoing programs and emerging initiatives:

  • Lifesongs
  • Story Gathering
  • Living Story Collaborative
  • El Otro Lado In the Community
  • The Academy’s arts and community engagement programs and events, collaborations and research initiatives with other organizations and place-based projects.
