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).

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.

Indigenous Storytelling and Children with Autism and ADHD

Indigenous Storytelling and Children with Autism and ADHD, video by Julie Vaudrin-Charette

"As an educator, and as a mother of children diagnosed with ASD and ADHD, I use learnings from Indigenous Storytelling as entry points. Being connected should resonate with being grounded in heart, emotions, body and spirit. This is part of a presentation at Performing the World 2014 conference, NYC."
