What Are ‘Impact Stories’?

‘Impact stories’ is our name for some of the visual elements that are used in this site to articulate some of the ideas that impact endorses for improving our world.

We believe that the only bad storytelling experiment is the one you didn’t think to try.

We created these visual narratives to try to explain the complexities of impact in a way that went far beyond the comfortable confines of presenting data in tables and documents. In a way that’s what this whole project is about. But it finds particular resonance in these short creations.

The stories feature animals (but mostly sloths!) that were generated using OpenAI’s DALLE3 text-to-image algorithm.

We try to use these digital inventions to do justice to the story of impact.
