Storytelling in the Community


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.
