Why do we create stories?
Storytelling is crucial to our individual, communal and cultural identity. Story is learning, celebrating, healing and remembering. It can mark a life, enrich individual emotional and cultural development and assist in making sense of our world.
Storytelling involves an exchange and engagement between storyteller and audience. There are many reasons why people participate in this process. These stories illustrate some of the reasons. They highlight why stories are important for individuals, families and society.
