Kirsty Grierson and Leigh Tesch presented their work in the Small Stories Project at an International Teaching Artists Conference (ITAC4). Small Stories promotes oral storytelling and creative play through performance and workshops for babies and children under 5yrs and their parents/carers. In the workshop, delegates created their own stories that reflected their own practice and engagement with communities. It was inspiring and valuable to meet with other artists from around the world committed to creating quality early learning theatre and story experiences to encourage growth, development and relationship building in the early years of www.smallstoriesproject.com
