Equipping leaders with the tools they need to develop and deploy narratives that change the world.


Launched through a multi-year partnership of the Ford Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies, the Narrative Initiative empowers experienced and emerging leaders and organizations at the vanguard of progressive change with the skills, strategies and support needed to influence social action through the power of cultural imagery and storytelling.

In addition to leadership development and capacity building, we support the creation of innovative tools, research and resources and work to build a global narrative network, connecting a growing field of brilliant thinkers and fearless fighters for justice.
