I was pleasantly surprised one afternoon when an old friend called me and asked if I would like to give a story telling workshop to two groups of children at Zee Festival, a weekend long creativity festival hosted by Nile University.
That weekend, I held two workshops for children, one for children aged 6-9, and the other 10-13. We discussed the different kinds of books and how they were a vessel for delivering a story. The students tried to think of the perspective of the author and which tools were used by him to create his story in these paper books. Finally, the children worked in groups, each creating their own books with the provided materials to go home with.
Overall, it was an excellent day of discussion which produced some very creative work.
