The International
School of Storytelling

Arthur Dyer

Arthur is a graduate of the school of storytelling and has been running introductory courses on the ‘Art of Storytelling’ for the last four years.  He has been working as part of The Brighton Storytellers collective, hosting and performing regularly at club nights in a variety of venues across Brighton.

Arthur has a particular interest in integrating story into daily life: at work, at home and within communities.  He likes to explore the ‘shape-shifting’ quality of story, bringing it to a wide range of contexts: forest school by the fire, ceremonial occasions, assemblies and community festivals.  He teaches Games and Sport at Michael Hall School, often using story and imaginative pictures to inspire movement in children aged 9-18 years.

Arthur is excited by the relationship between movement, nature and story, how they can inform and enrich one another.  Working outdoors and in Forest School settings, he works with Stories, often as bridges to imaginative play, inviting children and adults to connect with nature in many ways: through the senses, craft, empathic animal games, puppetry and poetry.
