School groups will have the unique opportunity to engage in a discussion with special guests of the FALL festival and participate in a follow-up educational programme called Story Exchange. The discussion guests are Bassam Aramin, a Palestinian academic, and Rami Elhanan, an Israeli graphic designer, both of whom lost their daughters to violence in their homeland. They now hold lectures together around the world. The follow-up training programme is inspired by the methodology of the global project Narrative 4 and focuses on developing empathy through sharing stories.

Relatively new, but already proven through hundreds of events, the Story Exchange programme develops empathy through the sharing of personal stories, enables identification with works of art, and, from the perspective of educators and students, provides a rare moment to get to know each other and at the same time develop the competencies needed to build a story and narrative.

They have lost their daughters to violence in their homeland. They now give lectures around the world calling for peace. The story of the unlikely friendship of the two fathers united in grief, and a desire for peace inspired Colum McCann’s celebrated Apeirogon.
