Storytelling Magic by Frits Ahlefeldt
Thanks a lot to everyone who contributed to our research and helped us to understand how trainers and facilitators feel about storytelling and the idea to connect it with radio broadcasting to give refugees a voice in their new communities.
Click on LISTEN_survey results to access the presentation of the main outcomes. The biggest surprise to us was to see how wide spread and established storytelling already is in education and that everyone agrees on its power to bring people together, to learn and to understand eachother. This gives us confidence and assures us that we are on the right track with LISTEN.
LISTEN is starting out with a broad research among stakeholders about the state of the art in applying storytelling as educational approach with refugees and to use radio and broadcasting as media to share life stories with a wider public.
We invite you to take a few minutes time to participate in our online questionnaire. It addresses trainers, counsellors and social workers working with displaced persons, and aims to identify practices, preconditions and training needs in regard to storytelling with refugees.
