Share your experiences while making new friends.

Storytelling is an important form of empowerment, allowing people to share their experiences and express their creativity to a diverse audience. The process of sharing stories is fundamental in building empathy and connectedness in young people, especially in a globalised world where much of our communication is digital. For many would-be storytellers, the anxieties around spelling and grammar, as well as the pressures of traditional performance, are intimidating and create barriers to participation. We want to break down some of these barriers and anxieties and have fun with storytelling. 

Through this Storytellers’ Club, we’ll help you weave fictional worlds, characters, and narratives into a story entirely of their own creation. You’ll explore narratives relevant to their own lived experiences, as well as using fiction and fantasy as a form of escapism. You’ll then discover and invent different methods of storytelling, including performance, puppetry and spoken word, to find a method which best suits you and your story.

The group will run some performance events and publication opportunities, as well as weekly workshops.
