We would like to invite you to the launch of the educational project
NARRATIVE 4 / PŘÍBĚHEM inspired by the Narrative 4 methodology of sharing
stories, founded and promoted by the leading Irish writer Colum McCann. The
project, which has been successfully implemented for several years in
Ireland and the USA, is based on the belief that by sharing our own stories
we can develop empathy, strengthen cohesion between different groups and
collectives and contribute to a greater level of understanding between
people in general. The presentation of the project will be followed by a
round table on the role of story in creative education.
