Telling a good story is a good skill anyone can benefit from and use in any situation. From public speaking to hanging out with loved ones. A good story is always welcome and we all have one to tell. The Tell me a Story workshop encourages children to create and share stories through creative games. My intention with Tell Me a Story is to create a supportive space for children to be creative and share stories. By the end of the workshop the goal is for children to understand the importance of their story and the control they have over their narrative. If you can write your story you can create a better future for yourself.
