We were warned that Algebra was going to be really difficult, whereas Einstein was told that it was a hunt for a creature known as ‘ X ‘ and that when you caught it, it had to tell you its name.
Keith Johnstone (storyteller)
Story Trails is here to work with people of all ages and backgrounds, creating and nurturing stories that free imagination and creativity, and help us grow.
I believe that we are all creative, and that stories are one of the most powerful ways of channeling our creativity. They help us to understand and care about each other; they even help us to learn.
Storytelling is an indispensable human preoccupation, as important to us all – almost – as breathing.

I consult with schools to develop playful learning schemes;
I work with schools, parents young people and communities to better understand our playful natures in the context of games and social media, helping others to make positive choices within social and gaming platforms;
