Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of communication, from the earliest days it has been used to share ideas, beliefs, culture and heritage. It is a powerful medium of instruction that captures the imagination of the audience and allows them to connect with the past. Today cultural institutions like libraries, archives and museums employ storytelling as an effective means to share their resources and fulfill their mission.
Robert Trio, a museum professional with 20 years of experience, will share his strategies to make storytelling a fundamental component of exhibition and programme planning. By using different storytelling approaches institutions can make their message more meaningful, relevant and entertaining.
All participants are encouraged to bring an ordinary object to the workshop that can serve as jumping off point to how to build an effective story.
