International School for Storytelling and Peace

Produced by Arjen Barel and the ISSP.
Filmed, directed and edited by Anastasis Sarakatsanos.

In July 2014, a group of young people joined a storytelling and peacemaking workshop at the St Lioba Monastery, in Egmond, The Netherlands (School for Peace).

The group consisted of 8 Arab and Jewish Israeli/Palestinians, amongst young people from several countries across Europe.

Organised by the International School for Storytelling and Peace (ISSP).

The International School for Storytelling and Peace wants to contribute to a more peaceful world by training people in telling- and listening to stories and in using storytelling as a tool to avoid separation and to increase mutual understanding, acceptance and respect in order to solve conflicts.

The International School for Storytelling and Peace is based in Amsterdam but works and initiates projects all around the world.
