What are Storybites?

Moments of radical transformation. What is the difference between needing to be understood and actively trying to understand someone else? Storybites is a new Guestbook initiative that creates a participatory space for people who want to share stories that highlight a radical or surprising shift in their perspective through the encounter with another person. The Guestbook Project operates on the maxim, ‘if someone asks you who you are, you tell your story’. Overcoming violence and facilitating conflict resolution involve precisely this: expressing your own story and listening to the story of the other.

How to share your Storybite?

  1. Take a minute to think about your transformative moment and the story(bite) you want to share.

  2. Take out your phone and record (or ask a friend to record) your storybite. Your video should be between 1 and 2 minutes.

  3. Send your video to the Guestbook Project.

  4. We will share it with the world!
