Abstract

As designers, we are often called to focus and extract information from the public and civic context, and elaborate them into insights and research purposes that will inform design projects. Storytelling is one of the most important tools in the research toolbox to communicate the insights we collect in the field, and to engage the research participants, and it is grandly challenged when it faces to serve people and cultures: how are stories built? How will plots, characters, and narrations be orchestrated? Which culture of reference will be displayed? Which critical translations will be performed? During this active conversation with the participants, we will share and discuss principles and recommendations for a design storytelling toolkit that leverages listening as the key pathway to shape stories across cultures and contexts.
