Caravan Project in the Untold Stories in Organizations by Routledge Publications


A whole chapter regarding the cultural activities of Caravan Project in Greece, written by the professor Maria Daskalaki,  was included in the book Untold Stories in Organizations edited by Michal Izak, Linda Hitchin, David Anderson by the prestigious Routledge Publications. In this chapter,  we discuss untold stories in relation to space and transformative creativity. We present the Caravan Project, a visual ethnographic project that gives voice to marginalized stories through film documentaries. These documentaries, when re- territorialized in diverse social contexts, produce story-spaces within which untold stories can emerge. We discuss two specific story-spaces and explain how transformative creativity transcends fixed subject positions towards polyvocal modes of becoming. In this context, we propose three properties, mobility, multiplicity and permeability that render creative story-spaces rhizomatic. Consequently, story-spaces encourage fluid, heterogeneous and volatile interactions and through that, maintain their potential to elicit untold stories.

The field of organizational storytelling research is productive, vibrant and diverse. Over three decades we have come to understand how organizations are not only full of stories but also how stories are actively making, sustaining and changing organizations. This edited collection contributes to this body of work by paying specific attention to stories that are neglected, edited out, unintentionally omitted or deliberately left silent.Despite the fact that such stories are not voiced they have a role to play in organizational analysis. The chapters in this volume variously explore how certain realities become excluded or silenced. The stories that remain below the audible range in organizations offer researchers an access to study political practices which marginalise certain organisational realities whilst promoting others. This volume offers a further contribution by paying heed to silence and the processes of silencing. These silences influence the choice of issues on organisational agendas, the choice of audience(s) to which these discourses are addressed and the ways of addressing them.

In exploring these relatively understudied terrains, Untold Stories in Organizations comprises an important contribution to the organizational storytelling space, opening paths for new trajectories in storytelling research.
