The Italian partner CESIE has done a storytelling event connected to LISTEN in Palermo. They aimed to foster the integration of migrants by using storytelling.
In a workshop the participants learnt how to structure stories, how to create atmosphere and, of course, how to tell them. The workshop was in Italian, so participants automatically used and learnt the Italian language. The storytelling workshop was a great success. Some of the participants decided to tell their publically, others to write them down.
Pictures, reports and stories of the Palermitan event you can get here.
During our project and work with storytelling we are finding permantly information about the power of storytelling. A very beautiful video with the famous actor Ian McKellen as storyteller we want to share with you: https://vimeo.com/125383660.

During the last week of June, BUPNET and blinc helped a group of migrants to create their own radio show. The radio show was created in cooperation with VHS Göttingen and StadtRadio Göttingen.
The participants were German language learners who have left their countries of origin for different reasons. To combine these two aspects, they have chosen the topic “Flucht und Bildung” (“flight and education”) for their radio show. During the week they learnt some storytelling methods, and developed the interviews, reports and music they wanted to share during the show.

The stories should reflect the idea of LISTEN aimed to promote intercultural storytelling with refugees and migrants as we believe that a story can build bridges and create mutual understanding between different cultures.
