Schools Programme

We believe bringing storytelling to the children is not only important but very exciting for them and for our teachers. To ensure we can give our primary schools a choice we will host events in the Town Hall Theatre and also give the option to have a storyteller visit the school.

For the secondary schools we want to engage through a very contemporary storytelling format; film. In essence this is what film is. We're currently gathering feedback on the appropriate film selection. A special screening in SGC's main auditorium with an introduction by a film historian will make for an instructive and entertaining afternoon.

While the formal schools programme is organised on the weekdays, we will also announce more tailored events for young audiences and families. These will include storytelling in the Comeragh Mountains, visual arts on the beach, a photography workshop in partnership with Lismore Castle Arts, a creative writing workshop with Eimear Cheasty, twitter dynamic stories etc. Full details will be available early September.

Mindful of the important usage of storytelling as an educational tool, Storytelling Southeast has specifically chosen a range of performances for pupils in both Primary and Secondary school.
