Creative Storytelling: How to Create and Tell a Good Story
The workshop Creative Sotrytelling with Dimitar Uzunov was included in the Best 10 Creative Events in London for September 2018.
“The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation to come”
Stories guide and give meaning to our lives. Humans need stories to convey meaning, values and hope. Human cognition is based on stories and the human brain is a kind of cognitive machine that serves us to understand, remember and transmit stories. Stories are a reflection of human thought.
This workshop covers the complete process of creating and telling a good story. Participants will learn how to gather materials to build stories. Then, through games and exercises, they will develop specific skills and knowledge to create successful stories. The last part of the training will focus on how to tell your story in a compelling and engaging way to an audience.
HOW TO CREATE COMPELLING SCI-FI AND FANTASY STORY WORLDS
Storyworld design is a key aspect of all fiction, but is of paramount importance for the sci-fi and fantasy genres. For this workshop, through games and exercises, we will learn what are the elements of a compelling storyworld and how to build from scratch a storyworld that will deeply resonate with audiences.
This workshop is designed in collaboration with sci-fi author Daniel Roy.
The Art of Pitch: How to Present Our Idea in a Compelling and Engaging Way
Pitching today has established itself as the most widespread format for presenting ideas and projects. It has gained particular popularity in start-ups, film and television. In this intensive workshop, participants will learn what pitching is and how to successfully present their ideas and projects.
This workshop introduces us to what Science Communication and Public Engagement with Science are. Different formats of science communication will be discussed. Through hands-on exercises, participants will step into the role of science communicators and receive personalized feedback.
You have an important presentation coming up but you are afraid to stand up in front of an audience? You worry your voice will sound weak and unsteady and your movements will be uncontrolled? You don’t know how to improve the rhythm and intonation of your words? Don’t understand body language? When you speak you feel you are losing the attention of your audience? Your tongue slurs your words? You don’t feel you have a strong presence in front of an audience?
This personalized training will help you find clear answers and solutions to all of these questions. The training is adapted to any kind of public speaking: conferences, presentations, corporate meetings and speeches.
The training is made up of exercises, games and examples of different stage techniques.
Digital creative storytelling
How many times have you heard the phrase “Tell it with a story, that’s how it’s most impactful? And how easy is it to create a story? Do you know how a successful story should be created and told? And have you ever been embarrassed to speak in front of an audience? Do you know how to use different digital tools to tell the story of your cause or business? Do you want to learn how to make your story into a short and impactful video to share on social media?
If you recognize yourself in that description, then our course is right for you.
Immersive & site-specific storytelling
The workshop will introduce participants and develop their skills into immersive storytelling and experiences. Immersive storytelling immerse the spectator physically in the world of the story and turn them into an active participant and often even creator of the story. They are widely used in various fields of art, education and business. Immersive stories offer a more holistic and impactful way of storytelling by using the historical, architectural and cultural specificities of a particular place and embodying them in the fabric of the stories being told. Workshop participants will be introduced to a variety of techniques and forms and will create different immersive storytelling experiences.
