On The Value of Storytelling in Society

What if we talked about the significance of storytelling, or tales, in society?

I invite you to explore a portion of the lessons we've drawn from my NGO Konstelacio's Lyra project, focusing on the use of the tale 'The Fabulous Journey of Arwenn.' I am the author and storyteller of this story, which was shared with 1300 children in France, India, and Tunisia from 2015 to 2017, and with hundreds more in schools and libraries in France and French schools abroad since then.

This feedback is excerpted from an article I recently composed for UNESCO as part of a publication about storytelling as an element of intangible cultural heritage.

What about you? Do you use tales? If so, in what context and with what pedagogical interests?
