Threshold Collaborative

Deepening Empathy, Awareness and Action through Stories

Threshold Collaborative is a national organization dedicated to using the power of stories to ignite and sustain social change. We work with individuals, organizations and communities to tell the powerful story of your work, your aspirations and your community. Our partnerships build alliances and broaden participation so that more people can become active agents of change.

Threshold Collaborative uses stories to illuminate and share the experience, insight, knowledge and hopes of people striving for inclusion, justice and peace. Stories have the power to uncover effective strategies for change and to strengthen the empathy needed to make those changes a reality. Threshold is known for helping to make community voices heard in engaging and thought provoking ways.

Threshold works as a consulting partner: designing strategy, workshops and creative projects that reflect the uniqueness of your community and issues. The 3 broad topics below describe, but only begin, to reflect the richness of our partnerships. We hope that you will be in touch.

Knowledge, Experience and Impact:

Threshold Collaborative uses stories and community engagement to surface the wisdom that supports community change. Using a participatory research approach Threshold can help you design and implement an evaluation process that values the knowledge and experience held by those who are most impacted by issues. Through these participatory practices we engage and support community members to gather, identify, analyze and measure what matters; building change from your community’s experience and insight.

Empathy and Participation:

Everyone who has tried to make change knows that to build and sustain momentum requires the development of powerful relationships. Threshold Collaborative use of story and deep engagement ignites shared values and builds effective strategies that are resilient and strong. Our work with organizations has led to the development of curricula, policy reform, public awareness, education and social change campaigns.


Threshold Collaborative has developed creative ways of helping people truly listen and engage with the power that stories hold. Our work is used as a public installation to bring large numbers of people into “conversation” with your story.
