Crafting a Strategic Origin Story for Creative Nanaimo

Through SOHO, come together with your colleagues and craft an “origin story” for Creative Nanaimo. An origin story is a strategically constructed narrative that integrates facts and emotions to present a clear and compelling articulation of a collective WHY.

For Creative Nanaimo, uncovering the emotional core of where we’ve come from will make it easier for us to collectively articulate a unifying and motivating vision for the future of our community.

Our journey to an Origin Story will begin in two parts. First, join us at the SOHO Workshop Mixer on January 19th, when we’ll learn the nuts and bolts of constructing origin stories — insights that you can apply to humanize your own organizational narrative. We’ll deepen this conversation at SOHO, with an in-depth roundtable discussion that will be the next important step towards articulating our collective narrative. We want your perspective! Come join us for an engaging, enlivening and creative conversation about the future of our community!

By the end of the session you will be able to:
  • Identify what a Strategic Story is, how it functions and why it’s important
  • Develop a foundation for Creative Nanaimo’s strategic story
  • Test the effectiveness of that story by working collaboratively with your colleagues.
