This 3 week, full time storytelling course focuses on the art of telling true life, autobiographical stories to a group of listeners.
By the end of the course you will have the skills necessary to shape and craft any story that you want to tell, whether it's around the kitchen table to your family and friends or to a room packed full of people!
Many people these days have a story to tell: it might be an important moment in their lives, something funny or sad that involved members of their family that are not with them any more, or their personal involvement in a larger, historical happening. But there are many questions about how to do this well:
How can we share a true life story so that it is not just egotistical?
How can we tell a story as if it were a gift to our listeners?
How can we move people, touch them, help them see more clearly what it is to be human?
The course will include practical story crafting and coaching in small groups amongst many other things and will conclude with a public sharing of our stories. A maximum of
8 students will be accepted to ensure individual attention. Some storytelling experience is beneficial but beginners will also be considered.

Stories are one of the best ways of bringing people together.
In today's world where families and friends are often spread far afield, connections between people are often maintained by Facebook, Skype and Instagram.
How can the ancient art of storytelling help rebuild our communities, whether that community is a far flung family, our friends, immediate neighbours, school, church or business?
Using a wide variety of stories and exercises, we will begin to explore how the storyteller can help us deal with loneliness, isolation and fragmentation and begin to create a new sense of community. Suitable for beginners and those with more storytelling experience.
