Berättarministeriet (Cabinet of Tales) will open its very first creative writing workshop in Södertälje on Saturday 19 November 2011!
151 89 Södertälje
* You will find Berättarministeriet's Alien Supermarket between
the Zoo shop and the Library.
Children and young people between the ages of 8 and 18 will be welcome to work with storytelling in different forms. Stepping through the gates of the Berättarministeriet should be like entering another world. There will be mysterious hatches, magical doors and plenty of things that stir the imagination… The writing workshops aim to plant a seed of inspiration within children and young people, creating a place where they can explore storytelling on their own terms.
The activity in these workshops will be wholly based on the work of committed volunteers, there to support, encourage and inspire the children in their writing. The founding idea is that it’s important for children to tell stories – but equally important that they feel listened to. We believe that if you as a young person get the feeling that the world around you is genuinely interested in knowing who you are, where you come from, what it was like where you grew up, what your thoughts are on outer space or what dreams you have for the future – your self esteem will grow and you will strengthen your identity and sense of self.
