Life in the Middle East is like a visit to a bustling bazaar: an adventure with twists and turns, challenges and triumphs. We bargain for beauty and despair, encountering struggles and transformation. Our personal stories reveal themselves as we strive to follow our calling, amid the chaos and turbulence of the region.
This biographical storytelling course is for anyone living in the Middle East or who has a connection to the region. Together we will explore methods of unlocking memories in a fun and encouraging atmosphere and craft them into short oral stories. Working creatively with our perception, understanding and interpretation of personal experiences, we will open doorways for finding fresh meaning for past experiences and seeing our present story as full of potential and possibilities.
Together we will cultivate an atmosphere of multi-national warmth, empathy, and compassionate listening. In the spirit of exploring the common ground of our humanity, we will keep away from political or divisive topics.
By the end of the course, you will have learnt a variety of storytelling techniques, including how to shape and craft memories effectively and artistically, so that what is personal to you touches something universal in your listeners. You will have the required skills to apply the process to any biographical story you wish to tell in the future.
