ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
Tamas' roots are in Europe (Hungary) but eight years ago he roamed to Tasmania with his family, and they are still roaming.
Tamas performs stilt walking, storytelling and is also a trained in woodcarving. He is also an experienced teacher and community developer, who design, runs and researches community-based participatory practices.
Tamas is an international oral storyteller. His tellings are inter-generational events, or in other words: stories for all ages. Classical storytelling is an intimate situation for everybody. People gather and sit in a semicircle then the sound of the flute creates that mental space where the book-captured sleeping story is released and comes to life again, floating into our body, mind and heart.
Tamas uses stories from his own Hungarian tradition, but also from other cultures from all over the world in the most respectful and sensitive way.
