Roisin Murray replied to John Brolly's discussion An event that is only storytelling?
"Does it have to be tents?  Up here in the Midlands we have several venues under the banner of Storytelling Cafe, originated by Graham Langley (and Katrice Horsley, who is now doing other amazing stuff). There are two regular (monthly) events.…"

Turning experience into performanc

Have fully recovered from the Holy Land trip - got my energy, sense of perspective and my humour back. I am now working on a performance, using some of the traditional stories told out there, and linking it with the personal stories I heard, the adventures we had, and my reflections on my own experiences. This will debut at the Multi Faith Centre at my local University on the 30th September, so I am working hard to polish the material and get going on proper rehearsal. This stuff was really…See More

from the Holy Land

Hi All,



we have now finished running workshops with Jewish and Arab groups. First event was a visit to a Palestinian refugee camp in the West Bank called Tul Karem, where we met Palestinians and heard their experience, followed by a meeting of 50 people (25 from each side) who met in an olive grove to share experiences hosted by Combatents for Peace, a group of ex-warriors from both sides who have decided that the gun won't solve the problems. We met under a canopy and despite three… Continue

We will host workshops in various places, and at the end of May we are performing in Galilee at a Storytelling for Peace Festival in Harduf. for more info see… Continue

Society for Storytelling England and Wales Annual Gathering

Just back from the Annual Gathering in the beautiful Lake District of England. This area is a mix of high peaks and wide waters, it is often wet and dank (hence lots of lakes) but on a Spring day when the sun is shining it is God's Own Country. This weekend the sun shone!

The theme of the gathering was "A Sense of Place", and I was torn between enjoying the wonderful surroudings of outside, and the beautiful house we were staying in and the gems that were to be had in sharing ideas and… Continue

The places storytelling takes you....

In preparation for an upcoming tour in Israel, working across faiths/cultures, I have been looking into other faiths (I was brought up a non-practising Christian). Today I went to an open day at a Mosque in our city. It was a brilliant experience, people were very welcoming and there was a lot of information on the history and practices of Islam. Whilst I have only got a tiny glimpse of this faith I do feel I understand the links between the Abrahmic faiths more. It is a pity we don't tell more… Continue

Roisin

you were a star yourself at FEST, well done. We will have other opportunities to crack open bottles of bubbly and celebrate.

do you have contact with Limor Shiponi in Israel? She has an amazing online blog called Limor's Storytelling Agora which you should definitely check out.

Did the tea last you and Wallace long? There are some great photos of FEST being posted on Facebook. Plus I have blogged a little bit about it here but there will be more of course to come. Have you joined the FEST group on here yet? Be great to get your feedback on the conference.

Welcome Roisin. It sounds like your doctorate will help you find and answer questions that will also help you professionally. Stories surround people so much that they are like fish not being able to notice the water. Helping them see how fundamental stories are is a good first step to getting to helping people in practical ways.

I have just been trying to capture the essence of storytelling for a magazine article - it is so difficult. Has anyone had a bash at this?
