The “Power of Making Futures” report will comprise nine case studies. These will be documented through different formats, encompassing a mixed media approach to content development, such as narrative storytelling, podcasts and graphic recording.
The report will endeavour to analyse and unpack the following themes in civil society innovation by dedicating three case studies for each of the following themes:
Innovative approaches to development cooperation
Moving beyond the Global North-South lens of understanding cooperation. The cases will focus on South-South cooperation in research, knowledge production and political advocacy.
Participatory funding models
Exploring emerging funding approaches and analysing more equitable approaches that aim to rebalance unequal power structures with partners in the countries where ICSOs operate.
Rebalancing power dynamics in narratives and imagery
The development & humanitarian sector are still rife with problematic narratives of white saviourism and undignified portrayal of the communities we serve, perpetuated through fundraising and marketing. How can civil society organisations role model change and foster fair and ethical storytelling?
