A changing Mission

A changing Mission | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
For many years, the Mission has been the battleground for protests over evictions, tech shuttles, gentrification and the soaring cost of living. The Mission's longtime residents are struggling to make businesses work, fighting to keep a foothold in their homes and coping with an unprecedented influx of wealth. For them, the shift is far more nuanced than catchy protest slogans. #AChangingMission

30 key storytelling lessons from 58 filmmakers. | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
We asked filmmakers to rally together—not for us, not for themselves, and
not even for the Storytelling Parade prizes.
We asked them to rally together to tell the story of individuals or
organizations doing good for the world—to share their stories in hopes of
inspiring the world. 

What happened was nothing short of magical.
Barbara Ganley's insight:

Useful tips (though I hate lists).  Great blog, too.

The Art and Science of Great Brand Storytelling


....Instead, a true brand story originates from its story platform — the emotional heart of the brand, the ephemeral something that customers can connect with. It is not a tagline or a descriptor. You won't put it in the footer of your email address or on your website's homepage. Instead, it is the enduring idea that will serve as the consistent basis for the many stories that a successful brand must tell over time. It's the glue that holds all your brand's actions and words together.

Barbara Ganley's insight:

Useful! Great tips on finding the emotional core of your brand.  Nonprofits, take note!
