who are we?

Everyone matters. Every story counts. We’re Social Storytellers, a social enterprise. We empower people who want to get back into the labour market, by providing training in storytelling. And by producing powerful videos that tell your organisation’s story.

We teach our trainees, the Social Storytellers, how to tell organisations’ stories using video, photos and text. The Social Storytellers are a bit different: they’re daring, they’re enterprising and they’re rebellious. And that’s reflected in our productions!

What do we believe in?

what do we believe in?

We believe in a world where everyone can participate in society in their own way. It’s our conviction that everyone has their own talents and ambitions. Sometimes it’s just a question of being helped to discover them. With our training, we give support to the people who need it, creating an upwards spiral.

 

 

What we do

what we do

We train participants in storytelling. Our participants are the Social Storytellers. We’re optimistic, committed and inspirational. Storytelling means telling stories that move others: you devise, tell and capture stories. Our Social Storytellers learn the basic skills in this field. What’s more, our storytelling classes go hand in hand with life-skills; we challenge participants to overcome setbacks.

The Social Storytellers form an editorial team in each city or region. This team is an agency where demand for and the supply of storytelling services come together. This allows the trainees to work on real practical assignments and learn all the skills they need for storytelling. As a result, we can work in a socially sustainable way.
