Ihidero said the mission was to prepare participants for opportunities that extend edtheir enhanced skills by servicing the industry with better storytelling.
“This is not a screenwriting workshop or script clinic but a capacity development workshop for practicing creative professionals to improve on structural storytelling-a skill that’s essential in a lot of ways,” said
According to organisers, Chris Ihidero’s Story Story is an intervention capacity development workshop series that is aimed at helping professionals in the Nigerian creative industry reawaken their ability to
tell better stories, accurately by highlighting engaging principles that make a story alluring to the audience.
Participation is drawn from creative practitioners who are already telling stories through advertising, screenwriting, audio-visual content producers, content directors, drama series producers, digital marketing consultants, Public Relations experts, feature editors and brand managers.
The workshop will be held on October 27-29.
