Ever since ancient times, people told each other stories in all situations. We all tell stories in any sense. Across the world and in all cultures, storytelling been the most important and widespread medium for imparting knowledge, experience and values. Everyday Storytelling has always existed, whereby the family, the village or the working community exchanged information using anecdote, gossip or short stories. Via the telling of stories we communicate, connect, and exchange the information that is important both for ourselves – and for others – that gives meaning and context to our shared experiences.
