‘There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories’ — Ursula K. LeGuin

Storytelling is one of the oldest means of human communication. Storytellers tell stories using musical accompaniment, interpersonal forms of entertainment, or oral literature to pass tales, cultures, and histories verbally throughout the centuries. Storytellers not only preserve cultures, but also pass on history and moral lessons

The ancient art of storytelling is especially well-suited for student exploration. No special equipment beyond the imagination and the power of listening and speaking is needed to create artistic images. A narrative catches the fancy of a listener, making him attentive and inquisitive. Heightened imagination leads to creativity and out-of-the-box thinking.

Storytelling involves audiences (children and adults) emotionally and helps them develop a positive attitude towards the learning process. Words, phrases and expressions used in a context of a story are comprehended better. Hence, this art of storytelling helps children improve their language.

Story Ghar, a house of stories, founded by storyteller Jaishree Sethi has taken this initiative forward in Delhi and eventually in the rest of the country

Story Ghar uses the method of storytelling for educating children on variety of subjects like environment conservation, gender sensitivity, teamwork, cultural values, heritage etc. Our especially designed modules help participants hone language skills, develop creative thinking, polish body language, improve expressions and gain confidence.

We offer integrated learning through storytelling sessions, skill development workshops, festivals, teacher training programs and corporate workshops.
