Event description


Come and enjoy our full day storytelling workshop featuring TWO incredible storytelling legends; Katrina Foster, actress, TV screenwriter and storytelling lecturer alongside Heather Mitchell, acclaimed TV and theatre actress and voice expert.

About This Workshop

In this full day workshop you will learn the full storytelling process; from rough idea to being ready to share in front of a live audience.

No online course to fumble and teach yourself at home. You will have all day face to face tuition. Once you learn these skills you will be able to reference over and over depending on your situation.

This workshop will use an actor’s insights and practices to help women explore the power of their voice, their presence and what they have to offer.

In an atmosphere of fun and enquiry, discover ways to approach telling your story, and communicate it with clarity, confidence and compassion.

The key areas to be explored within this workshop includes:

* Identifying the story you want to tell
* Connecting with the story you want to tell
* Writing your story
* Communicating your story
Under each of these headings the aim is to encourage exploration, offer exercises and skills, and invite discussion.
By the end of the workshop each participant will walk away with a strong story spine from which to develop their personal story.

Each participant will have had the opportunity to tell their story and have tools to help them with future presentations

Also includes:

Lunch and afternoon tea refreshments

Print out/notes/workbooks and pens

Take home gifts

Alter Eco chocolate

Chance to meet other like-minded creative women

Mama Creatives Story Slam Participation

You will also have the chance to share your story to the live Mama Creatives Story Slam audience on Tuesday 27 November. This will provide you with a real life presenting experience in public to conclude the full storytelling process from conception to live presentation.

* Please note, as there are only 6 places available, attendance at this workshop does not automatically secure a presenter spot in the Mama Creatives Story Slam event.

Having access to this type of information face to face from such experts is an incredible opportunity and value.

* As a Mama Creatives member or Story Slam presenter you receive a mega 30% discount for the day (individual tickets only).

* Only limited spots so you get time to learn directly from Katrina and Heather.

Come along to meet these two incredibly experienced and talented facilitators at this special full day workshop.
