Exploring Place through Stories and Storytelling
with Malcolm Green
10th – 12th October
Emerson College, Forest Row, Sussex

Working with memory, observation, silence, words and play we will explore how stories and storytelling open doors to our connection with place and the natural world.

We will work both with places we already know and the immediate environment of Emerson College. Participants will spend a good deal of time out of doors working with ‘presence’ to discover, create and present stories that will allow them to experience the place in a new way. The course is aimed at teachers, storytellers, environmental interpreters, walk leaders, activists and anyone else interested in using storytelling to better connect with place and the natural world.

For further information see the International School of Storytelling website.
