Most of speaking really says “I am hungry to know you” – Hafiz
Everyone has a story to tell. From the simple to the profound, the hilarious to the horrifying; every cell in our body, every memory, footstep and blink of the eye contains a story. Which stories are living within us that want to be told?
In this 2 hour introduction workshop we will discover a little about what stories we have to tell and how our personal stories can speak to a wider audience. We will explore how to find our way into the story and some skills for the craft of storytelling.
Special introduction rate: 48NIS, 40NIS each if you come with a friend
My name is Charlie “Kesem Creativity” and I am an artist and storyteller, originally from the leafy suburbs of North London; currently based in Israel. I have been working as a group facilitator for over 7 years now, and specifically with story for over 4 years, since training at the International School of Storytelling in England. I run storytelling evenings and workshops and I have performed in a range of settings, from festivals to charities, to schools and arts and cultural centres.
My work weaves contexts of performance arts, community organising, education and change making. The foundations of my work are rooted in storytelling and integrative arts therapy, using creativity as a catalyst for transformation.
Needless to say, I am passionate about storytelling; the (somewhat) lost art of storytelling that thankfully seems to be re-blossoming once more in many parts of the world! By storytelling, I am not talking about theatre, visual diaries, digital narratives or social media, I am speaking of listening and connection – where the teller transmits a tale, from “mind to mind, eye to eye, and heart to heart” (David Campbell). In these current times, dominated by technology and disconnection, I feel compelled to bring this kind of storytelling back into our everyday narratives.
