Exploring Legends & Myths Through Storytelling, Drama and Art

  • Workshop

Storytelling is one of the simplest and most compelling forms of dramatic and imaginative activity which enables youths to create and recreate imagined worlds together.

Exploring heroes, villains, gods, goddesses and creatures from important myths and legends from their own cultural backgrounds, young people have gather together to share and celebrate stories in a theatre workshop involving storytelling, drama and art.

This theatre workshop was a cultural exchange between young people aged 12–18 from ethnic minority backgrounds, including young people living in Direct Provision and young people from the Irish community.

Leading the cultural exchange, the young people chose the stories shared, created performances, and painted visual responses as a backdrop to performances. This workshop was facilitated by drama teacher and writer Eve Li and Artist Leanne McLaughlin and will be available from 11am on Saturday 11th June at (38) Exploring Legends & Myths Through Storytelling, Drama and Art Cruinniú na nÓg 2022 – YouTube
