The Narrative Directory is a tool for activists, civic innovators, independent storytellers, journalists, researchers and funders to locate one another, exchange knowledge and see the bigger picture of the global impact storytelling and narrative change ecosystem. By sharing resources openly with each other, we’re better able to make connections, seed collaborations and build shared narrative power.

The Directory is hosted and curated by IRIS (International Resource for Impact and Storytelling)—a funder collaborative devoted to ensuring the field of narrative change becomes influential, widely accepted and generously supported.

We are currently in-beta. We welcome your questions as well as your feedback on how to improve the usability of this tool and its dataset.
