• Restorative Narratives: Defining a new strength-based genreivoh

    What if the news media covered stories of recovery and resilience as much as they cover stories about devastation and despair?

    This question has been central to our recent work at Images & Voices of Hope (ivoh) and aligns with our mission to strengthen the media’s role as an agent of world benefit. We’ve coined a term — Restorative Narratives — which describes a genre of stories that focus on recovery, restoration and resilience in the aftermath, or midst of, difficult times. This genre is by no means new, but there’s never been a constructive name for it until now.
