The Story Museum in Oxford, UK

The collection of (life) stories is based on the stories that are developed and told during the piloting projects carried out in all partner countries.

After the training course in Innsbruck all course participants (trainers) apply their new storytelling competences and embed applied storytelling activities in their training offers. These participants are encouraged to tell their stories (fictional or real) and record them. With their permission their stories can become part of the growing collection of stories that will be published here on our website.

In addtion, the stories that will be submitted in the framework of the European award are published in the collection.

Furthermore, we have not only told stories in the LISTEN project, but also did interviews. Although intervies are not stories and have a story structure, they support intercultural understanding and build brigdes between people. So, we decided to publish them either.

The storytellers and interviewees are European as well as migrants and refugees from all over the world.

You can find all kind of stories and interviews in our collection. If you use the following tags, it will be easier for you to filter some information.

  • language of story: German, English, Italian, Greek or Swedish
  • gender of the author: man or woman
  • kind of file: an interview, (a told) story or a written story
  • if a story is told: real story or fictional story
