A Storytelling Workshop for Women
Peace begins with us, in our own homes, in our neighbourhoods and our communities. We can stop bullying, abuse and sexual violence. Join me in this workshop and learn how to create positive change through gentle, non-intrusive, storytelling techniques.
Folktales are a powerful, finely honed tool. We can use storytelling:
- To en-courage ourselves
- To support people close to us
- To educate our communities
With storytelling we can shift attitudes and grow awareness and insight into issues of bullying, abuse and sexual violence.
INSTRUMENTS: TRADITIONAL STORYTELLING, CREATIVE EXPERIENCES, INDIVIDUAL EXERCISES, WRITING AND CONVERSATION
What will we do? Use traditional folktales and storytelling to better understand:
- The mechanics of abuse;
- Disempowerment through surveillance and fear;
- The power of the ‘key’ and the ‘egg’;
We are doing this because we want change.
