National Storytelling Week


At ARU we explore storytelling in all its forms. Stories are powerful. They help us understand each other and the world around us. A well-told story can have social impact, change beliefs and behaviour. Most of all, they give our lives texture and warmth. Telling stories is what makes us human.

Explore and celebrate the importance of storytelling with our staff and students.
