Frequently asked

Frequently asked

Welcome to the ‘frequently asked questions’ section. It does not include every possible question but we intend to update it over the following weeks. However, please do not hesitate to holler so that we can address those questions you have floating around right now.

Do I have to be able to draw, play a music instrument - be an artist?

While undoubtedly participants’ interest would stem from wanting to work through what they already know (music, for instance) this is not a requirement. Quite the contrary, in some instances it could be detrimental. Being (or becoming) a narrative practitioner is the default but we will help you find ways of creatively and collaboratively engage people, groups or organisations – either with some artistic skill you already posses or as facilitators and co-authors in people’s lives.

Is prior narrative training a requirement?

One of the things that we are excited about is that we employ everyday accessible arts to teach you about narrative work. It is a two-way street. So, no. Those who have prior narrative training will benefit from the journey informed by the arts and those with no background, they will get to learn about narrative ways from a fresh perspective.

What is online studies like?

Online studies are here to stay. But apart from that, the programme being an arts focused programme, is developed with experiential, participative, image driven and connectedness in mind. The more the student participates the more they will benefit. We make use of the full spectrum of technological possibilities. A good internet connection (most nowadays will do) and enough data on the part of the student are advised. Even personal (actual in-person) contact is not out of the question although it is likely to develop organically and not formally part of the programme.

When can I start?

You can start right away, or at least, as soon as we make those section available to enroll. Once we take off there will be a number of commencement dates during the year (2 to 4). You will also be able to start whenever you want. It’s online after all. But you can then opt to catch up with any one of the groups.

How do I get hold of you?
