The Art of African Storytelling
See expert storytellers from various different cultures demonstrate their storytelling abilities and explain what it is that makes their brand of storytelling unique. Audiences will be encouraged to share their storytelling heritages, and the facilitator will explain the origins of storytelling and the variations that exist within Africa.
