Storytelling is a powerful design medium. It can communicate ideas, convey knowledge, honor or confront the past, and challenges us to contribute our own stories. As we strive towards a renewed understanding and approach to collaborative design through engagement with diverse communities, storytelling is fundamental to the creative process.
