a project of TheNarrativeMethod

DIY Human is a project born from The Narrative Method, an award-winning non-profit offering programs that increase empathy and expand perspectives for many underserved communities, including veterans, youth and homeless. TNM also works in healthcare, higher education and K-12 teachers’ continuing education.

DIY Human Cards are powerful tools for offsites, workshops and conferences. Our expertise is in fostering diversity and inclusion, team-building, empathy, and collaboration. Perfect as an icebreaker.

DIY Human Cards

It’s not a game, it’s an experience—a fascinating, connective and expansive adventure into the stories and big ideas that shape our lives. DIY Human Cards are simple enough for anyone to use and meaningful enough to evoke and sustain deep conversations and camaraderie.

Our Story

The DIY Human Cards were born out of necessity when an excited graduate of one of our programs approached us with gratitude. “This course was life changing—but what are we supposed to do now?”


We created a compelling group experience that folks can do on their own without professional training.  It’s fun, yet meaningful enough to evoke and sustain deep conversation and camaraderie.


The DIY Human Cards all have prompts based on The Narrative Method’s 12 Core Concepts. You can use them with a group of strangers, colleagues, family, friends. You can also try them with one other person or on your own as writing prompts.
