Storytelling is ubiquitous, around the earth and throughout history. As Ursula K. LeGuin said, “There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.” Whether it is real-life experiences or wild imaginings that inspires the material, each of us has stories to tell. This is an opportunity to investigate the various methods and intentions of storytelling in a group atmosphere, while cultivating one’s own personal storytelling style. Learn how to use stories to share different perspectives, delve into the many ways to enter a story and develop a manageable sequence of events.

For Naomi Steinberg, connecting with four year olds is as marvellous and unique an experience as connecting with 84 year olds – both are possible through storytelling. In classrooms, rainforests, festivals and conferences, Naomi has over 13 years experience facilitating creative workshops with diverse communities. Naomi has presented her work internationally is currently the Executive Director of the Vancouver Society of Storytelling, where she works to foster an appreciation of the art in all of its aspects and applications for audiences of all types.
