Storytelling Academy - 21st - 24th August 2014

  1. 1. Academy Storytelling
  2. 2. Hero's The journey
  3. 3. Unveiling the Main Characters of the Story The central elements of the story gather and clash. 12 people from different walks of life, different cities, different cultures, yet who share something they have in common. As we begin this learning process, we first take time to understand our personal stories – What has influenced our stories and where are we now? Vulnerability, Courage and Solidarity will be the main themes of this entry stage.
  4. 4. Building the Setting, the Frames and the Scale Now, let’s set the scene. Where are we? To advance in the story, we need to understand the broader context in which we are operating – the world we live in today, as well as the world we will create in the following 4 days. At this stage, Responsibility, Ownership and Commitment will be our main focus.
  5. 5. Exploring the Romanian village life and culture The ASTRA Village Museum in Sibiu is one of the largest open air museums in Europe and it brings together many facets of Romanian traditions and culture from various regions. It will be our host in exploring Cultural Storytelling as we craft stories using its exhibits ranging from houses, churches, windmills, small mines and fishing houses.
  6. 6. Conquering the Old City’s History and Science Sibiu’s Old Town is a wonderful display of Transylvanian architecture and history. Many of its structures contain rich folklore about historical events, leaders, legacies and practices from the dark ages. This place will help us explore Historical Storytelling, looking to unravel what is it that we can learn from our past.
  7. 7. Harvesting the stories of ordinary people Besides the stories of Sibiu’s culture and history, there are great stories in the making as we speak. In this segment, we will challenge ourselves to connect with stories of ordinary people, people who we might have otherwise ignored. If bricks and stones can tell stories, imagine what stories are lying behind the individuals that live amongst us?
  8. 8. The Sheppard’s Dome The Păltiniș mountain resort is situated at 1440 m altitude, being the highest resort in Romania. It lies in a conifer forest and in summer it is sought for its peacefulness. Here we will engage with a Sheppard who will invite you to see life, nature and the world through his eyes, as well as taste some fine products of his work.
  9. 9. The Hero’s Greatest Fight: With Oneself “Great Tree Top Adventure! 3 Hours of Great Fun!” That is what some people say after experiencing Arka Park, an adventure park accessible for both children and adults. The aim of this experience is to challenge our fears, step into the realm of the unknown and take risks. As the heroes of our own stories, we must learn what lies behind every great achievement – risk and sacrifice.
  10. 10. The Story of Today and Tomorrow After all these experiences, one must wonder – What’s next? Every hero on a journey must prepare his comeback and return to his homeland. What will come of this return? How do I see my story today? How do I feel my story will evolve in the following days, months and even years? Our stories are still very much unwritten…
  11. 11. Telling stories for the next generations… As we return back home, we realize that we have a huge responsibility as our stories will be the ones that will inspire (or not) our future generations. What kind of stories are we looking to pass on to our children? Not just our written or spoken stories. Our strongest legacy will be the stories they will tell about our actions and about the community we have helped to create. Our children deserve a better world and a better story…
  12. 12. Learning Manual The Learning Manual will be our companion in our journey. As we go through our sessions we will explore Key Ingredients in Creating Stories, The Historical Themes in Storytelling, Character, Dialogue and Setting Development, Story Typologies and Public Speaking. Besides traditional storytelling, we will also look into stories and themes specific to our times – from the extinction of man to stories of retrospective years, from stories that take millions of years to stories that take a few hours in a room or even under the microscope.
  13. 13. The Storytelling Academy will take place between the 21st and the 24th of August in Sibiu, one of the jewels of Transylvania. Our venue will be the Diana Hostel which is part of the ASTRA Village Museum Complex and as you already saw, we will explore several more sites that Sibiu has to offer, weather permitting. The next slides will give you more information on the meals, travelling to Sibiu and the payment options available.
  14. 14. The meals provided include the Dinner in Thursday the 21st up to the Lunch on Sunday the 24th. The food will be provided by Restaurant Cristinne Catering and each participant can create a personalized menu according to his/her preferences from the options made available.
