Opportunities Creative opportunities Local Storytelling Campaign celebrates the art of storytelling Dates: 17 September – 30 November 2018 Schools and communities across Scotland are encouraged to take part in an initiative that celebrates the art of storytelling, under the theme 'Growing Stories'. The Local Storytelling Campaign aims to highlight how stories help communities connect, grow together and play a vital part in preserving heritage and cultures for new generations. To celebrate, audiences across Scotland are invited to book storyteller for a local event, strike-up new community activity and engagement with storytelling. Wednesday 7 November will be a designated showcase day, and you may like to hold an event then and share all your news online with the hashtag #GrowingStories.
