Event Hero Change The story1440x900-min

Ever noticed a pattern in folk tales around women’s roles?

In this workshop, students will work in small groups to reflect on the gender biases and stereotypes seen in many classic folk tales and popular narratives; they will also get the opportunity to modernise the tales and rewrite the story in a manner that gives female characters the chance to choose a different future for themselves. And since no story is complete without a movie deal, each group will get to pitch their updated version to the workshop presenter/ film executive.
