Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of entertainment and also the way in which we make sense of the world around us. It is through stories that we create an identity, both through the stories we choose to hear about ourselves and the stories we choose to tell about ourselves.
Storytelling is an incredible tool that can be used inn exploring a variety of issues and emotions, whether these be within communities, organisations or individuals. Storytelling is easy to access and is a medium that everyone can identify with.
