Story Telling Workshop
Each one of us is a collector of stories. Stories are an integral part of our lives; we live in stories and we understand each other through stories. Hence being able to tell stories effectively, make meaning out of it and use it to influence others, we believe, is an essential human pursuit.
Radio Active 90.4 FM, along with its partners, has been running its yearly storytelling competition, where children from different schools and communities participate and share stories. Before the story telling competition, workshops are conducted for children as well as facilitators on effective storytelling.
