This time we are making a nice mix with Bongane Godide from South-Africa; an experienced literacy development fanatic & Storyteller pur sang! He is a dynamic and enthusiastic storyteller, who has made it his responsibility to share stories with children.
He won the Sibikwa Storytelling Festival in 2004/5 and has worked for Kwesukela Storytelling Academy. Bongane performed at many different events in South Africa including the National Arts Festival, the Puku Storytelling Festival, the Freedom Park Storytelling Festival and many others. But he also facilitates many workshops on different aspects of storytelling and story-play for ECD foundation and foundation phase educators.
Our second Storyteller in the mix, will be our Dutch forest friend Idger Zwiers. We know Idger as an enthusiastic person with a true passion for nature conservation in the broadest sense. Due to his education - focussed on ecological and sociological issues - he is in constant search for practical solutions and invites everybody to have their say; for we all could be a window of opportunity in nature management.
Also we are delighted to present the wonderful Charmaine Mrwebi from Bloemfontein, South Africa. Charmaine is a published author, librarian and founder of the Charmza Literary Club (among many other qualities!). She strives to empower communities to be able to tell their stories in their own language. Growing up in Thaba ‘Nchu, Mrwebi was a voracious reader. She has often spoken about how reading allowed her to travel the world without leaving her home. And that is right up our alley; stories make us travell far & wide - wherever we are - especially in these Corona times!
As you know, we are putting our Storytelling Cafe's in the world for free; because we find it important that everyone can join and stay connected. If you would like to partner up with us and help putting this into the world for all to enjoy; consider a donation. You can find all the donation info HERE
Looking forward to seeing you @ZOOM!
