Option A: You can use the story map as a reflection method for yourself and go through the different steps alone.
Option B: Or you can use the card as a basis for conversation with one or more interesting festival visitors.
Location: Find a comfortable place to fill out the story card.
For an easy start, you will find questions and check-boxes with general information about you as a person on the front of the card – both to make things fun and because our Creative Bureaucracy community should become visible!
Here you can also attach the selfie – with a good old stapler.
Switch to the back page. Here you can review your personal journey into creative bureaucracy and share it with us. We want to learn more about your journey and your work and have prepared 3 questions to spark your reflections:
- What is the change you are helping to create?
- What have you experienced on your way of becoming a creative bureaucrat?
- What is your drive and motivation? Why did you start your journey?
These questions will guide you step by step through your journey. They are separated by fillable fields to help you focus on each question.
Start with the first question: Read it through again at your leisure. You will probably have many different thoughts running through your head. In the corresponding field you will find a supplementary description. Use it to give form to your first thoughts. Write down keywords in the relevant field.
Switch to the next question and repeat step 4 and step 5 until you reach the end of the card.
If you like, take a picture of your story card to remember it. Finally, attach your map to our story board with a pin.
We will collect the story cards and present you with insights from the community on the CB website.
Take a look at the other cards on the storyboard and around the networking lounge – maybe there’s someone else you’d like to talk to!
