Storytelling

Sarah has recently returned from the Michna Palace in Prague where she was presenting at an inter-disciplinary conference on Storytelling: Global Reflections on Narrative.
Storytelling

Patrizia Sanguedolce and Sarah Jones

It was a purposefully small group, by conference standards – perhaps 80 at most and all delegates at some point were speakers, presenting their ‘stories’ or research from a variety of different contexts. An active decision was made not to use titles (Dr., Prof etc) as everyone is a learner and everyone has something to share.

There were social workers, architects, educationalists, therapists and photographers amongst others, who discussed the use of stories, storytelling and story gathering from these varied perspectives and the mix of people brought a richness to the discussions which followed.
