LISTEN in Palermo
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.
Submit a story
The LISTEN team invites you to enter the LISTEN award with a story – fictional or real. The story can be a memory, a self-created story, a fairytale, legend or myth.
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.
With your permission your story will become part of our LISTEN collection of (life) stories.
