Storytelling in June

This month sees Michael return to the National Museum of Scotland to share stories and the Museum's 'mystery collection' with wee ones from local nurseries and primary schools. Later in the month, he will engage groups of teenagers at the Scottish Parliament where his mission will be to encourage young people to share their vision and story for Scotland's future. And, in recognition of Fathers' Day, he's co-facilitating a workshop with storytellers Tim Porteous and James Spence which will help fathers discover their 'inner storyteller' and share tales with their children.

7, 8, 9 June: Stories for Wee Ones, National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh.

17 June: Political Voices, Storytelling at the Scottish Parliament for young people, Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh.

18 June: Storytelling for Fathers, Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43-45 High Street, Edinburgh (www.scottishstorytellingcentre.co.uk)
