The morning Open Space session is an opportunity for participants to have a conversation about the use of storytelling in specific contexts. What are the opportunities, challenges, desires and ideas? Participants will be able to move from one discussion to the other during this time, and moderators at each table will help the conversation flow. The session will end with a brief summary of the main points discussed on each subject.
-Language, multilingualism and language learning through storytelling
-Stories in faith communities
-Stories in the workplace
-Storytelling for older people
-Storytelling for health and wellbeing
-Storytelling tours and interpretation
There will also be a spare, unmoderated table for open and free discussion on any other topic and a table for questions, doubts and ideas about TRACS and the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
In the afternoon, four skills-based workshops will be on offer. Each workshop will run twice so that participants will be able to attend two out of the four. A sign-up sheet will be available on the day.
-Storytelling tours and interpretation (Bob Pegg)
-Storytelling and older people (Bea Ferguson and James Spence)
-Young storytellers (Lea Taylor and Lindsey Gibb)
-Multisensory storytelling (Aileen Finlay)
-Summary and future directions (Donald Smith)
Throughout the day people will have a chance to peruse our stock of spare storytelling resources and take any home for a donation to a charity project. Everyone is also encouraged to bring along any old/duplicate storytelling books they might have and donate them.
We invite all participants (and anyone else in the storytelling community, even if they didn't take part in the day) to come and join us for a pot luck dinner. We will be providing plastic plates and cutlery and ask everyone to contribute a dish to share with other participants. The evening will then flow into an informal Ceilidh, where there will be an opportunity to share stories, music and song.
