Tell Well: Storytelling for All


On Thursday January 28, Jeanne Lambin will hold a workshop on storytelling at Café Nim.

Workshop Description:

Everyone has a story to tell. Most people have many stories to tell. Whether for performance, presentation, persuasion or for just entertaining your peers, learning how to tell your story and how to tell it well is truly empowering. In this fun, interactive workshop we will help you develop your unique voice, find your story, craft it, and tell it well.

Additional Details:

Participants will be introduced to the basics of story structure, will mine their memories for long-dormant stories and will learn simple ways for telling authentic tales to a range of audiences. Participants need not prepare a story in advance but if they have one, they are welcome to bring it. Ideally, it should be no longer than six minutes. Those with no experience, a little bit, or lots of it are equally welcome. Please bring a pen and paper.

Location and time:

Kanalrommet at ISAK, Prinsens gate 44. The workshop starts at 19.00 and lasts for two hours.
 

Cost:

120 NOK
