The participants have gotten the basic skills in storytelling, inclusive the techniques of the puppet show. Teacher and facilitator of the weekend training were the well-known authors and storytellers DIANA Lebacs and Loekie Morales.
“Right after the training the storyteller participants have embarked on a practical phase, which started in April and last till June. Beyond Kultura has engaged 10 primary schools, 2 community Centers, some afternoon schools and a Children home to participate in this project. Candidate storytellers have been telling each of them 10 stories to the children.
“Now they have organized together a Kids Night Out, a story night for children and parents to enjoy quality time together, as the last part of their assignment. The Kids Night Out starts at 6.30 pm.
