Merging Through Game

The latest product from local non-profit Green CardVoices is the “Story Stitch” card game, designed to facilitate guided storytelling that connects and builds empathy between people of different cultural backgrounds. The tagline is “Telling Stories, Opening Minds, Becoming Neighbors.” It was co-created by diverse communities in the Twin Cities, and tested by leaders in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Sample questions: 

  • “Tell about a fear that you believe is holding you back.” 
  • “Tell one thing that you appreciate about yourself and why.” 
  • “Tell about a significant story in your life that you will always remember.” 
  • “Tell a story of a challenge you faced during your childhood.”
