Storytelling – For Young People.

Throughout history, stories have been a driving tool in order to pass on knowledge, wisdom, cultural beliefs and values. We have been telling and sharing stories with each other throughout all time.

The power of sharing stories is about breaking down barriers and bringing about human connection. Everyone has a story to tell.

In this session young people will learn the art of storytelling. attendees will not only understand the steps on how to construct and write or perform their story, they will learn about the power in their own stories.

This workshop is all about ensuring that young people have a voice, have a safe space to share their experiences and emotions and to shape their futures through their stories.

Storytelling has been used as an artistic form of expression across cultures, landscapes, and moments in time. It is long proven and documented that through narrative we own our stories and in turn heal through sharing our narrative.

This workshop will empower young people to retell their stories which will support in gaining insight into themselves and others and to develop positive solutions to issues faced by young people.

The workshop concludes with cultural conversations and Q&A on topics of culture, race, identify and diversity.

Storytelling: Learn how to tell and share your story.

According to Driscoll & McKee (2006);

Authentic storytelling is inherently connected to ethical leadership and the creation of a more ethical culture. People reflect on well told, meaningful, stories that are told from the heart and soul. They resonate and stick with us. This, in turn, helps us with discernment, in making better decisions, more ethical decisions. In this way, authentic storytelling can allow leaders a way to communicate their vision and values, to inspire, to bring about understanding and change, and to empower‘.

In this session you will learn the art of storytelling. You will not only understand the steps on how to construct and share your story, but you will learn about the power in sharing your own personal story.

Through this workshop we will create an open space to facilitate a Q&A in order to have conversations around culture, biases, race, refugees and diversity.

Through conversations this workshop aims to bring about topics of understanding race, culture and diversity. We will unpack our own biases in order to understand each other and connect with each other.

We will talk about empathy vs sympathy and how the power shifts when we understand the meaning of these topics.

Concluding the session with an understanding of compassion for others which is the underlying connector for engaging in positive interactions across cultures and with people from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

‘A human being is part of a whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.’

Albert Einstein on Compassion (1950).

Storytelling is a powerful tool in order to connect to someone’s experience, building empathy and is a useful learning tool.

When we hear someone’s personal story, we are able to put ourselves in other people’s perspective and learn from their personal experiences.

In this session Liliana shares her experience of arriving to Australia as a refugee and what the journey and experience entailed.

A harrowing story of survival, freedom fighting and ultimately escaping from a brutal dictatorship.

Liliana also facilitates a Q&A session after sharing her story in order to initiate conversations around experiences of refugees here in Australia and globally as well as notions of culture and growing up in Australia.

What others have said about Liliana’s storytelling and workshops:

Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast – 2020

“A powerful communicator who inspired not only myself as a Community Services worker but also our Youth leaders. Liliana’s openness to share her own story visibly moves people and challenges us all to reflect on our own beliefs. She has grown her story telling and cultural engagement expertise through her involvement in many community based theatre projects and corporate engagements and is able to read the room to take you on a journey that I invite everyone. A testament to the rapport Liliana establishes with everyone she meets. We would definitely invite Liliana again to lead future workshops and encourage you to do the same.”
