Telling Tales Schedule
The session will take place from 27th - 29th Sep (17:45h - 18:00h)
Nishanth S Gurva
We at SCCS are looking for storytellers who want share their personal stories and experiences that show that conservation is not all doom and gloom. SCCS felt there was a need to bring to the forefront the positive stories: field experiences, moments that had an impact, the joy of the hard-won victories both big and small, the fun field experiences, the sudden moments of insight, a breakthrough, the unexpected encounters, instances of courage and kindness, and the majesty of landscapes and seascapes.
We are inviting applications for Telling Tales – a storytelling initiative. Telling Tales was born out of a need to address the fact that so much conversation about conservation can be heavy and existential. It’s hard not to get overwhelmed!
If you think you have a story or experience you would like to share at the conference, please send it to us. Any one of the following formats is acceptable:
We will select up to six stories. Each selected storyteller will be trained by Mr. Vikram Sridhar, a professional storyteller. Following training, the trained storyteller will then perform at the conference, within a 5 minute slot.
Looking forward to receiving your applications!
