Chinmaya International Foundation presents a webinar on Exploring the Art of Storytelling, facilitated by Smt. Arundhati Sundar. The webinar in English will commence from 22nd January, 2023. This interactive webinar aims at developing the storytelling skills of the participants and help them in becoming master storytellers.
Storytelling is an ancient art form, an entertainment at social gatherings, a bonding through shared memories in family circles, a celebration in festivals, an imaginative communication of wonders of the world, passing on the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of a culture from generation to generation. It is an essential skill for parents, teachers and Balavihar Sevika/Sevaks. Like any art-form, it can be developed and mastered. Through planned exercises, the aim is to equip the participants with the essential skills to become effective storytellers.
Dr. Arundhati Sundar is passionate about connecting to culture through storytelling. She has conducted storytelling workshops for Balavihar Sevikas and Sevaks in several CM Centers in the US and Singapore and lately as an Adjunct Professor of Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth, an online Storytelling Course for the university students. She was a regular volunteer storyteller in primary schools, public libraries and festival events for 20+ years in the US and Singapore, & an active participant in the Storytellers Circle of the Society for Reading and Literacy in Singapore. From 2011-15 she mentored Balavihar Sevaks in Singapore, creating course content for Balavihars.
During 2020-21, as an Academic Outreach for CIF, Arundhati conducted four online workshops, attended by 70+ participants from Australia, Singapore, India, Dubai, and the US.
