Programme updates.

ALL THE DETAILS of Workshop Leaders and including individually priced Workshops will be on here on the 29th MARCH.

Latest Update:  workshop with Dr Hannah McDowall

There may still be a few other activities to be added before the end of the month as we have had a lot off requests to run workshops in the padst couple of weeks. Nothing that is already advertised will be changed.

Any late additions will be as an addition not replacements.

There is also the Fringe event in the Gardens at the University where a number of local storytellers will be telleing their favourite stories...

DR Hannah McDowall is the latest event:

5.00 `6.00pm Sat  and 9.45~10.45 Sunday

Dr. Hannah McDowall is both a storyteller and a researcher of 'value chains'. This year she plans to put those two together (with your help) and map out all the steps, inputs, connections and effort needed to get a great storytelling idea into the ears of an appreciative audience. When this research is finished she hopes to produce a 'map' or a 'guide' or whatever you think will be most helpful tool to support storytellers to reach the right audiences. BUT SHE NEEDS YOUR HELP TO GET STARTED, to identify the right questions and to contribute your own experiences of navigating the storytelling journey.

In this discussion Hannah will introduce the research project and how she believes it could serve the storytelling community and market and then give you loads and loads of time to say what you think too. This is a co-creation space.Storytelling Workshop:

SHARON JACKSTIES ~ A SENSE OF PLACE   Sunday morning workshop ~9.45 ~1045How to create an authentic setting for your story. One of the most powerful qualities of storytelling is its ability to evoke any place or time for the audience.
