My voice is strong and loud: the power of using storytelling in your work

Everyone wants to make their message stand out from the crowd, but how do you do this when people are bombarded with new information every day? One way is to use storytelling. Storytelling is an incredibly powerful tool in advocacy: it can break down taboos and bring messages alive. Delivering stories to your audience in a compelling and memorable way can help people relate to what is being said and will help them remember your message long after other information has been forgotten. In the second episode of the AmplifyChange podcast host Halima Zaid talks to Nawejje Doreen Mayanja, a Ugandan woman living positively with Albinism from Human Rights for Women and Girls with Disabilities (HURIWD) Uganda, and Ondiege Matthew, Artistic Director of Dance Into Space (DIS), one of Kenya’s leading contemporary dance choreographers, to hear how they use storytelling in their work.
