With over 20 years experience in arts and cultural education, Nicholas Pawlowski M. Ed. produces educational storytelling that listens and responds to children. Through participatory activities such as drawing, dance and improvisation, the Story Table fosters confidence, builds student leadership and enhances our capacity to relate with others
In todays world, dominated by passive entertainment, (TV, Netflix, YouTube, etc.) The Story Table is a safe space in which children (and adults) can actively engage with the old stories by contributing their insights, questions and creativity.

In these uncertain and challenging times, it is crucial that our children's education is nurtured by story, their imagination cultivated by creativity and their health supported with exercise!
