Start by copying this group of words into the story search box (at the top):
("kibera slum" "mathare slum") and (housing house home)
these stories by selecting a few specific answers below.
- If you check a box beside the answer, only stories with that answer will be included.
- If you check multiple boxes within the same question, any stories matching one of
the selected answers will be included. (This is like saying, "Give me 'happy' or 'hopeful' or 'inspired'.)
- If you don't check any boxes beside a question, that question will have no effect
on the collection you build. It will just ignore that question during filtering.
- Selecting all answers or no answers to a question will have the same effect of ignoring that question, so
you only need to select questions that you care about.
- Typing a word or phrase into a text box will filter stories, keeping only those that contain the word you typed.
So, for example, typing "Nairobi" into the city text box will only return stories that took place in Nairobi.
The most revealing filter questions relate to outcomes:
and the storyteller's point of view
Lastly, you'll notice a box where you can enter "group_id numbers." This is used by organizations that have built
a custom storytelling survey or surveys. By entering the number of the survey, they can limit their search to
only stories that were received by that survey.
