Event description

Description

'Opening' is a unique residential weekend that explores multi-sensory storytelling through the lens of the Celtic seasonal calendar.

Opening is part of a new series of residential courses run by PAMIS, Spirit of Stories called 'Seasons'. This series is a celebration of multi- sensory stories and the Celtic festival wheel, and each weekend workshop will be season specific. The weekend workshops will celebrate four Celtic festivals, offering four opportunities to work with multi- sensory stories and ceremony as a way of connecting and engaging with people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Opening - 3-5th May 2019

This experiential course is the second in the series and introduces and explores multi-sensory storytelling as a way of supporting and connecting with people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD), and other 'hard to reach groups', through creative engagement. As an introduction to multi-sensory storytelling this course offers the opportunity to explore creative sensory ideas and experiences that will enhance the lives of people with PMLD in a relaxing and supportive environment. An excellent opportunity to recharge your own batteries while exploring this subject!

Participants will:

  • gain an understanding of multi-sensory storytelling (msst)
  • gain an understanding of the benefits of msst
  • gain an understanding of the value of msst in education and engagement
  • increase creative awareness
  • realise the potential of creativity to connect with people with pmld
  • have fun and enjoy the learning experience

Programme:

Friday: Arrive on Friday evening and settle in. Introductions and an outline of the weekend.

Saturday: We will introduce MSST, creative ideas and the Celtic seasonal calendar. We will explore why stories are so important and what they can achieve. This will include an introduction to our senses.

Break for lunch (provided)

TWe will look at examples of existing stories, both individual and cultural, to generate understanding and begin creative thinking.

The Celtic seasonal calendar will be introduced along with some of the associated stories for this season.

Sunday: We start by concentrating on Beltane (an ancient Celtic festival celebrated on the 1st of May), and it's cultural significance. We will then examine how ceremonies can facilitate connection with people with pmld.

Our residential will be held in the comfortable surroundings of our Coach House, an accessible holiday home in Aberfeldy.



Meals provided: breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and evening meal on Saturday.

Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday to non-residents.
