Folktales about the moon

Sef Townsend
Monday 29 July 2013, 11:00 or 15:00 at the Korean Cultural Centre.

The interactive storytelling sessions with Sef Townsend will be a chance for children from about 7 to 12 to hear some of the wonderful stories about the Moon that are found in all cultures around the world, including Korea. Everybody will be able to have a really fun time of storytelling, song and ‘join-in’ music games. Sef will emphasise the use of traditional material from Korea and Europe and, as well as favourite Korean stories such as ‘The Sun and the Moon’ and ‘The Rabbit in the Moon’ we’ll be hearing other stories about the moon from The UK and Europe to see if they are really so different. Fun is guaranteed!

An experienced workshop leader, musician and storyteller, Sef has been working in performance and education, in Britain and overseas, for more than 25 years. He is a qualified teacher with a particular interest in Refugee, Interfaith, and Peace and Reconciliation projects and his teaching experience with children extends from the ‘Early Years’ through to teenagers. He has been involved in many cross art forms, inter-generational projects, and family-based learning activities. He has devised and presented programmes for BBC Radio 3’s Traditional Music Programme, and his storytelling and oral history work has led to programmes on London’s Spectrum Radio and BBC Radio 4’s “Woman’s Hour”.
