Story Swap hosted by Tim Ditchburn

To mark World Storytelling Day on 20th March, Triple Spiral Storytellers are hosting a 'Story Swap' in An Tearmann, Kilcullen, Co. Kildare. Come along to share your stories or just come to listen.

This is a night for oral storytelling, so no reading or notes allowed – just pure story! There will be no theme but the stories will be limited to 10 minutes.

The night IS for both tellers and listeners, for without good listeners there would be no good stories! This will be an opportunity for people to tell and also to just sit comfortably and join in the journey of the imagination. People wanting to practise their stories are also welcome.

This is a free event, starting at 7pm with teas and cakes provided

PICTURING THE STORY - a workshop with Sef Townsend

Further details available from Liz Weir
As a storyteller working with groups from a whole range of cultures, faiths
and linguistic backgrounds, what do I need to make my stories come alive?
Is it the words? Is it the pictures I'm trying to create? Or is it something else?
In this workshop we'll look at the many different ways of bringing colour, texture
and feeling to our stories, and to ask the question:
'Which stories can I really make work for my audience?'

Sef has been sharing stories for more than twenty five years. Often working with refugees, the exiled and those in asylum detention, he tells in churches, mosques, meeting houses and synagogues, and has been involved in peace & reconciliation projects internationally. Recent work has taken him from shantytown schools in South Africa to the British Museum; from the Korean Centre for Traditional Performing Arts in Seoul to a remote village and refugee camp in the West Bank. In the last couple of years he has shared stories, given workshops and conducted his own research in Belgium, China, Italy, Argentina, and Chile.
