Dignified Storytelling is a platform that fosters a common understanding of how storytelling can and should instill as well as maintain the dignity of all persons, while striving to create an environment of positivity that strengthens long-term relationships between the public, private and the development sectors. Dignified Storytelling was born out of the need to fill gaps in advocacy, knowledge-sharing, and available resources through the consultative development of a accessible and practical foundational Principles and a Dignified Storytelling Handbook.
We are inviting you to share examples of Dignified Storytelling best practices that embody the principles of Dignified Storytelling. These practices will be showcased on our website and will be featured in the Dignified Storytelling Handbook. We are seeking examples of photos that have the appropriate consents and are accompanied by a caption that answers the five W’s.
The Dignified Storytelling Forum will take place at the Expo 2020 Dubai Exhibition Center on Friday, 10 December 2021. It will mark Human Rights Day, which commemorates the day in 1948 that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Forum is part of Expo 2020’s rich calendar of specialist programming, which reflects and celebrates the spirit of Dignified Storytelling throughout the 6-month event.
