Event description

Description

Storytelling is an ancient art form connecting and enlightening humanity across time, space and culture. When used effectively, it is a powerful tool for supporting literacy, empathy, and as a basis for a wide range of arts projects.

Join Daniel Morden for a day of inspiration and insight into engaging storytelling and how it can be used successfully in the classroom.

This workshop is ideal for teachers, teaching assistants and arts practitioners who want to gain insight and techniques into the art of storytelling for supporting literacy and creative writing, and as a foundation for creative projects such as those delivered through the Lead Creative Schools Scheme.
