The Art and Science of Storytelling
The human mind evolved with stories and is shaped by them. Good storytelling can motivate people to do incredible things and is a tremendous advantage in communication. Education and learning are no exception.
Creating and sharing stories is a gift innate to all of us. Join these workshops and find out more.
We will share inspiration from some famous, especially successful examples, put them in practice with individual and group exercises, and share tips on how to build stories to create engaging activities, inspire learning and promote the change we want to see in the world.
These workshops are designed for a smaller group (15/20 people max) and will involve a lot of direct and personal interaction. So, camera and microphone will be needed all the time. The work platform will be Zoom. Don’t expect long webinars and talking heads, these activities are super hands-on. Our work will include bits of theory inputs, loads of group and individual exercises, challenges and games, sharing and reflection, and a variety of interactive digital tools to make our sessions more dynamic and engaging.
These editions are offered to trainers and youth workers for a very friendly price + feedback and review at the end!
The specific topics will be:
16h September, h 20 CET – How and Why do we create stories? (story structures with famous examples, why do we share stories + the deeper impact of storytelling, theory and tips for creativity, crafting and sharing stories, small group work to create and share short stories, improv exercises);
