Engaging Communities around Opportunity through Story Mapping Toolkit

story mapping
By leveraging the shared values and meanings among residents and building upon them in planning processes, story mapping can increase the opportunities available in disadvantaged neighborhoods and help residents better access opportunities around their cities and regions.

This guide is meant to help practitioners thoughtfully employ story mapping as a community engagement strategy around issues of equity and opportunity. It includes information about different story mapping approaches, how to select the best method for a given project, how to encourage communities to tell their stories and how to pick a platform to share a story map. To inspire creative thinking and engagement with story mapping, it also provides various examples of maps that have been and are being used to create change in communities around the United States and the world. The appendix lists additional resources for learning more about the different story mapping approaches, platforms and examples.
