EL PODER DE LAS HISTORIAS – THE POWER OF STORIES
About the Project
The human mind evolved with stories and is shaped by them. Good storytelling can motivate people to do incredible things and is a tremendous advantage in communication. Education and learning are no exception. The world of storytelling is a vast one. It covers the entire world and everything in it, and every century in which there is a record of storytelling having taken place. There is no known culture without some form of storytelling, and the craving to know “what comes next” has been felt by every human being, regardless of age, gender, culture, or century.
Stories also can be used for educational purposes. Storytelling provides other growth opportunities, as stories help listeners to see through another’s eyes and to share the protagonist’s feelings of anger, fear, or love -all from a safe place. Perhaps best of all, stories stretch the imagination. The teller takes the listener to distant places where remarkable things happen. And once stretched, an imagination stays stretched.
Within this project we aim to use the power of stories to ignite creativity in adults and develop their resilience skills and capacity to come up with innovative solutions for different challenges.
