Exploring the bicycle metaphor as a vehicle for rich story development: A collective narrative practice project— Marc F. Leger


This practice-based paper describes a step-by-step outline of a form of collective narrative practice which uses the bicycle as its central metaphor. A significant theme in this collective narrative practice methodology is an interest in attending to individual and collective experiences of place, and to the possibilities that place-based narrative enquiries can provide in eliciting rich accounts of people’s local knowledges and contribute to a ‘re-inhabiting’ of the significant social geographies of people’s lives.
