The Autobiographical and the Mythology
Workshop for Experienced Storytellers

09.11.2018 - 10.11.2018

Aim and content: 
This is a practical course where participants work both with autobiographic material and myths. Throughout the course, the participants will expand their toolbox and assess how stories can affect each other and how they can be used in public sessions or in educational settings. The course consists of exercises, conversations and views so that together one can achieve new skills and knowledge concerning the art of storytelling. Much of the theoretical foundation is based on the French philosopher’s work Maurice Merleau-Ponty called "The visible and the invisible", where one examines the relationship between experience and verbalization of this experience.
