SYNOPSIS

Every person has a wealth of life experiences and memories stored in them, waiting to be told through stories. In this hands-on workshop, adults will learn to improvise short stories by playing games and telling the stories orally.

The games played during the workshop will trigger the participants’ imagination and memories which they will use to create stories.

This workshop is suitable for storytellers, writers, illustrators, educators, parents and everyone who enjoys using their imagination and building on their communication skills.

AIMS

  • Understand how characters are driven by goal and motive
  • Create stories on the spot using a simple structure
  • Think and speak “on their feet”
