We all love to hear and tell stories. Stories connect us to the landscape, give meaning to our lives and provide a means of passing on knowledge, wisdom and behavioural norms in a cultural context. Natural environments provide a wonderful space in which to explore our relationship to ecological systems and to creatively engage ourselves with vibrant matter of our world. These trips are designed to stimulate students’ imaginative faculties and give them a forum in which to creatively explore their place and role in the world. We will explore a range of mythological archetypes and bring the landscape to life through storytelling activities, developing original dramas, theatrical skits and develop their communication and performance skills. This is a great way to encourage students to experience the power of their imaginations and to constructively express themselves in the wild!
