What’s it all about?
Stories are an integral part of society. We use them to entertain each other, to share information, to remember things and to influence people. Stories are also a great way to connect with people and show who we are.
We are going to learn how to create a personal story to share with others.
What will we cover?
In this beginners’ storytelling workshop we will:
- Introduce the ‘Magic Mirror’ storytelling technique
- Develop personal stories from our pasts
- Tell our stories in pairs going through several rounds
- Use specific questions in group work to develop the stories and add more detail with each narration.
