Stories can be a great tool to engage children, help them channelise their energy and further their learning curve. Started in 2011, Teamwork Arts’ Kahaani Festival has travelled far and wide across India, bringing alive the magic of storytelling for children. And much like how stories have a way of transcending borders, time and space, with the boundless possibilities of the internet, we are recreating that magic online.
In association with The Kamini and Vindi Banga Family Trust and Pratham Books, Teamwork Arts is delighted to present Kahaani in its digital avatar.
Kahaani Online is like the travelling raconteur that brings together stories from across the globe and celebrates the timeless art of storytelling in its myriad forms. The digital programmes aim to encourage children to think outside the box and beyond their course books by creating a virtual space where they can fully explore the realm of their imagination and creativity with curated sessions in art, dance, theatre and much more. Our features include monthly specials based on different themes and the Kahaani Book Club 'of the kids, by the kids and for the kids' for young learners to engage in interactive learning activities. With the addition of the book club, Kids Corner and an interactive website focused on using the online space in a fun and exciting manner, Kahaani offers our community of readers novel ways of interpreting stories and interacting with authors and fellow readers.
Kahaani Online features internationally renowned artistes, storytellers and creative workshops involving role-play, theatre, craftwork and music in a series of curated video sessions that perk up the imagination of children. Kahaani takes its audience on a fun-filled journey to the magical places of enchanted learning, all while sitting at home.
