They are sharing their experience in order to provide and improve methodology of storytelling, recording and working with local community. The main idea of developing the network is to promote storytelling as a mean to bring together different generations, safeguard and share with memories, and develop regional studies about local cultural heritage. However there are also other different lecturers invited to improve practical skills of storytelling and organizing storytelling events in “Storytelling libraries”.
