Description / Beschreibung

This storytelling workshop is for everyone. We’ll learn to tell short stories from our lives. We’ll also listen deeply to the stories told by the people around us. Stories can connect, inspire, challenge, and spark new ideas.

Dieser Workshop ist für alle. Wir werden lernen kurze Geschichten von unserem Leben zu erzählen. Dabei werden wir uns auch mit den Geschichten der anderen Teilnehmern bekannt machen. Geschichten können uns verbinden, inspirieren, anregen, und neue Ideen in uns erwecken.

During the workshop we are going to play with words, meet new cultures, share part of our stories, and most of all…have fun!

Während des Workshops werden wir mit Wörter spiegeln, neue Kulturen kennenlernen, und Teile unserer Geschichten miteinander teilen. Aber am allermeisten werden wir lachen und SPASS haben!

All languages, backgrounds, and interests are welcome. The only requirement is openness to others and their experiences. You don’t need to have any writing, storytelling, or other experience. We’ll celebrate each other’s languages and learn from each other.

Alle Sprachen, Kulturen, und Interessen sind herzlich willkommen. Die einzige Bedingung ist Offenheit für alle Teilnehmer und deren Erfahrungen. Du brauchst keine Erfahrung im Schreiben, Erzählen, oder andere Erfahrungen. Wir werden unsere vielen Sprachen zelebrieren und dabei voneinander lernen.
