Basic Storytelling Workshops!

Tell It! – Level One
A transformative workshop – all concepts come from participants’ immediate experience, and are validated by Kevin’s facilitation, not vice versa.

We start with low risk activities, and gradually increase the level of commitment until we are having a heap of fun.

Tell It! Uses large and small group exercises which encourage participants to experience the basic concepts of storytelling, how it works and why it is important.

After three hours, participants will have learned two stories so well that there is no reason under the sun not to dash out and share them.

Tell It Again! - Level Two
This workshop builds on the process and concepts experienced in level one.

Participants practice more and different stories with a focus on discovering their own strengths, and removing unhelpful thinking patterns and preconceptions which hold any storyteller, writer, performer or artist back.

Level one introduces participants to storytelling in the broader sense. Level two helps participants get a feeling for how deep their own storytelling goes.

Professional development workshops are tailored to clients’ needs.  Exercises can be adapted to accommodate small and large Groups.
