Participatory Narrative Inquiry Institute

Advancing the state of the art in PNI

Welcome to the PNI Institute

We founded the PNI Institute so we — and you — 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).

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. Want to join? Registration is free. Want to know more? Get in touch.
