Advancing the state of the art in Participatory Narrative Inquiry

Welcome to the PNI Institute

We founded the PNI Institute so you — and we — can link to other practitioners in the field of participatory narrative and in connected fields. Our ultimate aim is to advance the state of the art in Participatory Narrative Inquiry (PNI).
