Community Storytelling

Class: Sociology 499
Role: Senior Thesis Capstone
Agency: City of Bozeman
Working Group: Community Engagement

The City of Bozeman believes that storytelling may be a useful way to involve individuals in community projects, inform decision-making and promote equity. As such, the City is interested in developing a project that allows people to share their stories. To gather stories, the City needs guidance about potential methodological strategies and approaches. Students gathered resources related to storytelling in community projects; collected stories from individuals on MSU campus from groups of interest; analyzed and documented story themes; and presented final products to the City for consideration in their community engagement efforts. The MSU stories focused on the theme of belonging.
