Storytelling for Social Change

Human beings have told stories for many centuries. These stories have in many ways shaped who we are, the world we live in and the lives we live. Our ancestors used stories to transfer knowledge to generations that came after them.
Through telling stories, our ancestors found better ways to communicate and express themselves.
The Storytelling for Social Change will use the “what happened” methodology to tell stories that educate, engage and inspire change. Storytelling is no doubt a tool used widely in marketing, fundraising, day-to-day communication and social change (activism).
However, storytelling can only work effectively if one uses the right methodology to tell their stories in a powerful way.
In this session, participants will be introduced to the principles of storytelling and also get a chance to tell their stories and listen to each other’s stories.
We shall also briefly explore creative ways of documenting and sharing our stories.

The session will be very interactive. Every participant of this workshop (if NOT more than 20) will be given an opportunity to tell a story in 2 minutes- during this time, other participants will be listening.
Participants will also take turns to work as dedicated listeners, time keeper or even play any other active role.
