Traditional Tales and Contemporary Art to Promote Multiple Literacies
Blackrose, Morgan Schatz; Schatz, Roman W.
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
Storytelling-based arts projects offer a universal and inclusive pedagogy; challenging prejudices, celebrating diversity and promoting tolerance and resilience in participants. In addition they assist in the development of receptive and expressive language skills, provide a credible basis for understanding folklore, cultural traditions and social values, as well as offering a sound foundation for the pursuit of, and competency in, reading and writing. The contention that art and storytelling are global languages, lies at the heart of the storytelling based arts projects conducted by Australian storyteller, author and musician, Morgan Schatz Blackrose and Swiss Australian artist Roman W. Schatz.
