WHY A COURSE FOR STORYTELLING?
There are those moments when something new has entered into us, something unknown –A story perhaps.
Great stories have always inspired the way people think. Great philosophers and motivational speakers use stories to state a fact or to drive home a message effectively.
Kathalaya has set up an Academy of Storytelling as an internationally-recognized institute for storytelling –the only Global Storytelling Academy in the World. The philosophy and aim of setting it up was to evoke innovative ideas of learning through its ‘Thinking, Linking and Telling’ programs.
The Academy conducts Certificate, Diploma courses and short-term workshops all over India and the World to spread storytelling as a Life Skill. The certificate is affiliated to the International Storytelling Center, Tennessee, in U.S.A.; Scottish Storytelling Centre, UK; University of Skovde, Sweden.
The International Academy of Storytelling uses the Power of Storytelling as a unique methodology to create a practical, philosophical, and emotional connect within us.
It encourages people to craft their stories to stimulate an emotional and intelligent response from the participants. These stories are engaging and effective because they activate the listener’s imagination, connect them to their own experiences, and help them create new ones.
However, it is not enough just to tell a story. One has to know what one is doing to be effective. The storytelling techniques and skills that the participants learn during the course helps helps them communicate the story effectively using the right language tone and voice.
