I took part in the Irish Peace Centres' "Evaluation of Storytelling as a Peacebuilding Methodology" project a number of years ago, and contributed marginally to the text of the conference. This research working conference was a remarkable experience of asking evaluative questions of public storytelling projects, bringing practitioners, recipients, artists and funders together. The report from this "Evaluation of Storytelling as a Peacebuilding Methodology" conference is here.
