Project: Vivid Imagination and Heritage
Category: Cultural Education
Organisation: ASSABIL, Friends of Public Libraries Association
Vivid Imagination and Heritage is a project designed by ASSABIL to revive the link between storytelling and cultural heritage, driving the children and youth of today to taste and appreciate the richness of yesterday and use it to add momentum to the way they shape tomorrow. In a holistic approach, the project will train 12 storytellers from public libraries across Lebanon on the art of storytelling to enable them to ‘perform’ stories. Thereafter, trainees will be guided to apply their newly learnt skills through 12 storytelling events organized in public libraries/spaces, in coordination with local municipalities.
