Images and Voices of Hope (ivoh) and the Fetzer Institute welcome the 2019 class of restorative narrative fellows to the Institute for training and reflection on the year ahead. The 2019 fellows will be learning about reflective practices and restorative narrative, tools they can apply to their creative work and in serving communities with stories of resilience and recovery. 


Images and Voices of Hope

We believe that media can inspire us to imagine and create a better world, and we seek to shift the public dialogue from fear and despair to hope and possibility.

We partner with journalists, photographers, gamers, and filmmakers across the United States to promote and produce storytelling that builds empathy and compassion, connecting us across differences. We are scaling up our work to engage communities, universities, newsrooms, and digital and public media in collaborative, place-based efforts.

We offer alternative approaches to creating narratives by widening the lens that media makers and audiences use to view the world. ivoh is building on research that shows focusing on progress and positive attributes unleashes individual and community capacity for good, supports recovery, and builds broad capabilities for resilience.
