Storytelling in the Creative Process
There are many ways to tell a story. Storytelling is play, it involves exploring possibilities, imagining marvels. Why do we like stories so much? Why do we tell them? How is a narrative built? How might we play with a character? What do we want to tell? How do we tell it?
On the basis of the narrative work in her book Las visitas de Nani [Nani's Visits], published by Ediciones Ekaré, Chugani will explore storytelling in her work. The workshop will propose various narrative techniques, such as the investigative notebook, kamishibai (Japanese paper theatre), shadow theatre and kavaad as a tool for playing with characters and creating stories.
Karishma Chugani Nankani tells stories, and does so through her work as an artist, paper-engineer, writer, illustrator and designer.
In her school L'École de Papier, she researches the tradition of paper artefacts as narrative objects, organising workshops on the subject.
A workshop for teachers, illustrators and students about storytelling as a tool for developing creative intelligence.
