The Human Library presents: The Art of Living – Bring back the Story
Come to an interactive night of sharing stories. A space where people connect and meet in a meaningful way to:
Storytelling is a social and cultural activity of sharing about one’s life.
- Let us share information in a way that creates an emotional connection
- Teach us about life, ourselves, and about others.
Storytelling is the social and cultural activity of sharing stories. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values.
Stories have been used to hand down learning and knowledge for thousands of years.
A good story engages our curiosity, emotions and imagination.
Stories have a transformative power to allow us to see the world in a different way than we do if we just encounter it on our own. Stories are an entry point to understanding a different experience of the world.
This aspect of storytelling – presenting a different perspective of the world – is important when it comes to connecting with each other. It gives us an opportunity to learn from another person’s experience and it can shape, strengthen or challenge our opinions and values. When a story catches our attention and engages us, we are more likely to absorb the message and meaning within it than if the same message was presented simply in facts and figures.
When someone tells us their own personal story, we catch a glimpse of a view of the world that may be slightly or radically different from our own. When we see the world as they see it, or walk in their shoes, the experience can inspire empathy within them.
