Welcome to the Participatory Narrative Inquiry Institute

Advancing the state of the art in PNI

 

We founded the Participatory Narrative Inquiry 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 PNI.

 

This site offers a calendar of our monthly PNI Institute Calls, a blog with short summaries of our calls, some information about the Institute, and a members page.
