Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I trigered the revival of storytelling in Greece in 1990 and I 'm happy to be considered a leading authority both as an artist and scholar. I direct 2 international storytelling festivals in Greece and travel regularly giving performances, lectures and leading workshops in greek, english or french. Paedagogical and therapeutic applications are part of my research and I have published many articles and books on the insertion of traditional storytelling in modern schools according to the multiple intelligences theory. My project "Folk tales against addiction" runs for the 8th concecutive year in the primary schools of Cyprus were I have trained a group of 60 dedicated teachers in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.
