Why the Workshop
Storytelling is the oldest form of bonding. Stories not just provide wholesome entertainment to children, they also convey values, beliefs, attitudes and social norms which, in turn, shape children’s perceptions of reality. They are like a magic thread that weaves together a beautiful world for all of us!
When parents choose the right threads with awareness, a world of diverse possibilities unfolds with every story. It creates connection and nurtures the feeling of love and empowerment in the child-parent relationship.
This workshop is as much about discovering and learning the art of storytelling as it is about finding your own voice, remembering your values, and getting down and having some fun!
This is a two part or two series workshop. The sessions are designed on the basis of the objectives of the participants. This is a process based learning exchange where the participants act as a resource. We shall introduce the concept of Storytelling through various forms of Art - Painting, Writing, Poetry, Song writing, Body movement, Theatre activities, Games, and Meditation.
