Description

"To speak a true word is to change the world" Paulo Friere

Are you exploring new ideas that can help move us to a more just and compassionate world?

Do you want to learn how to communicate these ideas in a way that is passionate and authentic?

In this weekend workshop we will examine how stories shape our worldview and learn
how to harness their power to create positive social change.
Through games and exercises in a fun and supportive atmosphere you will learn:
• How to develop presence and authenticity
• How to shape your material so it holds the attention
• How to connect with your chosen audience
• How to tease out the key messages that can lead to action and transformation

Humans are story telling beings...

Stories shape our world. They help us make
sense of it and allow us to communicate what
matters. Stories are our ‘meaning making’
tools and as such they can be used to connect
or divide us.
As changemakers we can harness the power
of storytelling to shape a world that is just,
compassionate and thriving. The more we
develop our ability to speak authentically the
more we are able to reach people and
transform each other in myriad ways.

Everyone can learn the skills of good storytelling

In this workshop we will explore the
fundamentals of good storytelling. We will learn
how memorable stories are stuctured and how
to ‘paint pictures with words’. We will use
games and exercises to develop our presence
and spontaneity, become more expressive and
- most importantly - enjoy the experience of
being in front of an audience. It will be so much
fun you won’t realise you are learning!
