Storyknowing Festival and Symposium

“Storyknowing’ was a two-day event hosted in April 2016 by York St John University and York Theatre Royal that brought together practitioners, researcher and young people to explore, through performances, workshops and talks, the artform of storytelling with adolescents. Organised by Cath Heinemeyer (YSJU/York Theatre Royal), Matthew Reason (YSJU), Juliet Forster (York Theatre Royal) it incorporated rich and diverse perspectives from arts practice, mental health, education and youth work, as well as from young people themselves, and from socially engaged researchers.

We have made a 13-minute documentary film that tells the story and shares some of the learning of ‘Storyknowing’.
