Storytelling Beyond Words Creative Lab, like the
SBW 13-week storytelling training from which it has
developed, is committed to training and creatively
supporting those who wish to become imagineurs;
imagination entrepreneurs, contemporary storytellers
who dedicate their work to serve the living Earth,
nature, and humanity in meeting with courage and
imagination the challenges of these epic times we
have been born into.
This programme is open for 8 experienced storytellers
who are working on a specific storytelling project that
is clear in concept and objectives and requires the
time, space and supportive feedback to manifest it.
The programme will take place remotely over a year
with a three week residential component, in which we will work together to create an
environment in which participants can set the pace and focus for their creative work, while receiving input and coaching sessions from the mentors, tailored to their unique needs. This will happen in sessions with the whole group, in small groups and in one on one work. During the three weeks we will enter a creative process through active imagination and storytelling exercises, meditative and reflective practices to deepen your vision, and for those who need it, specific guidance in areas such as performance skills, group facilitation, creating social exercises and games, as well as guided marketing and publicity strategy with a business coach. The three week program will be followed up with presentations in public spaces relevant to each particular project's theme.
Our aim is to create a framework to support the development of storytellers careers, guiding the development of socially engaged applied storytelling. To develop this we are applying for public funding and will be exploring various opportunities for collaboration with art organisations.
If you would like to be considered for the program please download the information and application form and send it back to us the 20th October 2019. Applicants will be notified by November 15th 2019.
