Once upon a time there was a man who lived in a
little house. When he bought a car he talked to the car to ask if it was OK
because he did not want the car to crash.
And every day he drove to the mall and always said
something to the car. He talked to the car about all the things that happened
in his life.
Until one day the car answered and then it
transformed, in a big transformer, and became a friend. He called him ‘James’.
And because of that he gets a friend and all the
days talks to him like his son.
And because of that his son is always happy because
he likes all the movies about transformer.
Until finally they are being happy in their home
with their girl friends.
from 5 to 19 years old and their families took part in the project. The
‘Help a Child Publish a Story’ project was funded by the Royal Borough
of Kensington and Chelsea Arts Grants Scheme in 2017-18, to develop an
understanding of common elements within traditional stories and guide
the participants to write their own stories.
The stories are archived. It is also known as the ‘My Story Project’ among the participants. The project continues to deliver story writing workshops for lifelong learners and new stories are added to the Story Library regularly.
project workshops delivered in the library attracted under fives and
their parents and carers. These parents and carers helped their
children tell stories and they recorded their children’s stories on
paper or using the ‘submit a story’ form we developed on our website.
As the stories are being submitted to us, they are published on Talk Together London’s WordPress blog first. We developed a blog dedicated to archiving the project stories.
