Like many cities across the country, Sacramento is grappling with a housing crisis. Capital Public Radio responded by spending a year delving into the history, politics, and economics of housing in California’s capital. We produced The View From Here: Place And Privilege, a 10-part podcast, hourlong radio documentary and online community voice platform.
To carry the conversation deeper into the community, CapRadio collaborated with community partners to co-host a series of Story Circles. These events brought diverse residents face to face in intimate settings to talk about housing, hear one another and envision the way forward.
This downloadable guide covers how to host a Story Circle so that you can cultivate listening and bridge-building on housing or other issues in your neighborhood, organization or community. It’s written for public radio stations, community organizations, and other groups who wish to listen to, learn from and build trust with the communities they serve.
