What forms our identity? Through storytelling you’ll explore this question during this workshop.
Our lives are made of stories. The stories of our parents and the stories of our land, our culture and our nation define us and form our identity. These stories help us bond with some people but can also create a wall, separating us from others. In a dynamic and playful way, through various exercises, storytelling games and the sharing of personal memories we will explore together the complex theme of what forms our identity.
