Summer 2018 workshop at Pantin – Courtillières Park / Paris, France

Grow from Seeds has facilitated a summer workshop at Pantin – Courtillières Park in Paris, Eastern suburb. The event was organised by Le Labo des Histoires, a french national writing association. This creative drama workshop took place from July 9th to 20th  and had ten 1h 30 minute sessions. The workshops tested the Grow from Seeds methodology and it culminated in a video performed by the participants of the workshops at Courtillières Park.

The workshop gathered a group of 10 volunteer french kids from various locations, 5 to 10 years old. After several theatre and writing exercices, they finally choose to work on the Tir na nog tale provided by the Grow from Seeds methodology. They used the backbone of the story and enriched it with ideas of their own. The result is a 8 minutes video shot on the very last day of the workshop, as a conclusion of the workshop.

Workshop at Kildare Town Educate Together School / Ireland

On Tuesday April 24th 2018 the second class of the Educate Together School in Kildare, Ireland embarked and created their first Six Part Call to Adventure Story. And what an adventure it was. After participating in two previous workshops the class were ready to create their own class community story.

The result was , ‘The Cowgirls Competition’ – An epic tale of sibling rivalry, told and drawn in six parts, where two sisters, Kate and Kyle set themselves a challenge to see who could race around the world by horseback the quickest and get written into the Guinness Book of Records.

Fun and laughter was had and the story has all the hallmarks of a modern myth, and even had a moral to tell, “Cheating never pays off in the long run”
