Abstract: With our paper we want to elucidate how we came to understand narrative practices as a particular ‘educational space’ (Schugurensky, 2003). We have a particularly interest in how the looseness and open-endedness of storytelling possibly open new ways for citizens to name and explore narratively the dilemmas and contradictions of living with the plurality and globality of an urban context. Following research questions will guide our paper:
1. How to understand these narrative practices in relation to the attention for the more cultural side of citizenship today?
2. How can storytelling strengthen citizens to deal with the complexities and ambiguities of diversity in cities today?
