Online Workshops: The Art and Science of Storytelling (September 2020)


16-30 September 2020 | Online (zoom), Czech Republic

Do you want to learn about the art and science of STORYTELLING and how to create and share STORIES effectively? Register to these online workshops, designed for educators and trainers which involve a lot of exercises, interaction and fun. (6th Edition)

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!
I want to reach as many people as possible to share the passion for what I love, and reflect on its incredible powers (and risks) as communication tools.  

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);

23rd September, h 20 CET- How to use stories for personal growth (the Hero's Journey story mega-structure and how to incorporate Rites of Passage in education; the power of sharing with the Way of Council, and tips on how to lead such activities);

30th September, h 20 CET - Engagement, humor and comedy (how to create punchlines and deliver them, theory inputs on what is "funny", tips and exercises to keep an audience engaged and be confident storytellers, examples from stand-up comedy, writing exercises and jokes, jokes, jokes).
