European Union projects
The education team is currently working with a number of partners across Europe delivering the following projects.
Storymakers: Many Voices Many Lives
The Storymakers project is using the power of story-making and storytelling to equip young people with resilience, confidence, self-esteem and life skills. This project is working with educational professionals and socially excluded young people. The ultimate benefits will be the creation of a portal with free access to resources and training for those working with young people.

What is Storymakers?
Storymakers: Many voices, many lives, is an Erasmus + programme that aims to create and develop materials that will enable anyone working with young people to employ storymaking techniques. The Storymakers project is led by Hammersmith & Fulham Council in partnership with agencies in Cyprus, Poland and Portugal.
Who is this training for? If you work with young people and are interested in the creative sector, this training will offer you guidance in how to use specific methods through Puppetry and Objects and Creative Movement, learning how young people can develop skills and confidence through the power of storymaking.
This training will enable you to network with others, along with the opportunity to practice your skills in the future. You will receive an EU certificate of attendance, acknowledging you as a Storymakers Arts Practitioner.
