Images & Voices of Hope is happy to announce that we have selected the fellows for our 2016 Restorative Narrative Fellowship.

Nearly 100 people applied for the fellowship, with just four spots available. The fellows we selected — Dan Archer, Christa Hillstrom, Heidi Shin, and Moses Shumow — showed a deep understanding of Restorative Narrative and pitched projects that we believe will help deepen our collective understanding of this genre.

Each fellow will each be given a $2,500 stipend to spend six months telling Restorative Narratives in various communities. Their projects will focus on a variety of topics: the Colombian conflict; sex abuse among Native American women in the Pacific Northwest; refugees who are working through “double trauma” and finding resilience in Boston; and stories of restoration and renewal in a Miami neighborhood that is often defined by a single narrative about poverty and crime.
