iStimela Sendaba welcomes Gcebile Dlamini to tell the tale of ‘The Storytelling Stone’.
Where do you think stories first came from? This story shares one version of the story about stories, as told by the Seneca people about a man who hears a stone speak to him about stories.
The story train is all about passing on the wonderful African tradition of storytelling and bringing it into the modern day – stories feed our curiosity and imaginations, develop a love of learning, and connect us to others. Aimed at children aged 4-10, each session explores a new story told by a vibrant and energetic storyteller. Being in the zoom room will give you the opportunity to enjoy the story with others, and have some creative fun together. Get on the train daily with Tsholofelo Shounyane, our resident train conductor, and her friend, Nonki.
