Storytelling & Drumming This Sunday for Kids at #Streeteatsfest Event

by in Identity on 15th April, 2019

This Easter weekend at our Halal Gems #streeteatsfest we’ve got a treat for families with children. Who doesn’t love a good storyteller? Well, we’ve got one of the best in town to join us this Easter weekend in Old Spitalfields.

‘Alim Kamara founder of Storie Storie travels globally working with educational and corporate institutions to inspire through engaging storytelling workshops and motivational talks.

Alim and other speakers share cultural and life stories that demonstrate success, disappointments, persistence, and hard work. They travel to empower and share tools that equip students to develop an everlasting growth mindset.’

We know that on Sunday they will bring the floor alive and the children at #streeteatsfest will love the storytelling that will include drumming through it.

There will be two sessions taking place on the day, so be sure to put rumbling bellies at bay by grabbing your food and getting a seat. Priority for seating will be given to children and mothers/fathers with toddlers, so be sure to move aside!

Entry to the event is free and access to all festival events are free too, we recommend families to buy a wrist band on the day which entitles you to cheaper food across vendors.

If you need any help on the day please approach our team who will be wearing turquoise Street Eats t-shirts on the day.

About Storie Storie

“The storytelling workshop uses a mixture of ancient and modern tools to explore stories that leave the audience feeling inspired, informed and ignited, thus allowing people to envision a better world; a world of possibilities, opportunities and choice. 

 
Alim Kamara is a traditional Storyteller and Hip hop artist based in London. As a child living in Sierra Leone, he would listen to Griots (storytellers) and admired the way they weaved lessons through tales.
 
Mentored by poets and storytellers, Alim changed course and achieved a first class degree in Creative and Media Writing. This reigniting of his passion and birth-right as a Griot and polarizing Hip Hop artist.
 
Alim travels into schools and on stages in Dubai, Holland, Canada, Sierra Leone, Gambia, and the USA.  Just like the Griots from his past, Alim leaves his audience captivated with his performances and craving to learn, relate and elevate.”
