Telling Workshop (Half Day)

Telling Workshop (Half Day)

Essential question:

What is my story and how does it connect to your story?


Empathetic people aren’t just skilled at navigating other people’s emotions, they’re in touch with their own feelings too. Self-awareness is a foundation for empathy. The workshop introduces personal story sharing through visual representation, written work and practical activities. The workshop will also allow learners to make visual connections with the experiences of their classmates.

The learners will come out seeing that there are far more things we have in common with others, than differences. It also shows how love and acceptance among people can flow when they realise that they don’t have to maintain artificial boundaries or boxes.
