Workshop On Exploring the Art of Storytelling
Venue: Chinmaya Kirti, Hendon, NW4 4BA
Date: Saturday August 12th
Time: 10 AM to 4 PM
Fee: £30 per participant
A unique one-day workshop for parents, grandparents, Bala Vihar sevaks and anyone interested in developing their storytelling skills.
Storytelling is an ancient art form…a form of entertainment at social gatherings, a way to bond through shared memories in family circles, a way to mark festivals and crucially a way to pass on accumulated knowledge and wisdom of a culture from generation to generation.
Storytelling is an essential skill for parents, teachers and Bala Vihar sevaks.
Like any art-form, it can be developed and mastered.
Through planned exercises, this one-day interactive workshop will equip participants with essential skills to become engaging storytellers.
Take this opportunity to be part of the ancient tradition of storytelling, connect with Indian culture and reconnect to your inner child.
What if I have no previous experience as a storyteller?
Everyone is a potential storyteller. The facilitator will play the role of a mentor and guide to develop and enhance that potential.
