Today is the day of celebrations for MakeBelieve Arts, not only have we turned 13 but we are also pleased to announce the re-brand of our Early Years Storytelling and Story Acting approach.
Previously known as The Helicopter Technique it is now called (drum roll please) ...
Helicopter Stories: Letting Imagination Fly. Based on the Storytelling and Story Acting curriculum of Vivian Gussin Paley.
Not only have we changed the name but one of our wonderfully talented Creative Associates - Amie Taylor has also designed a fantastic and beautiful logo:
The change in name has come at a pivotal point in the development of this approach as we are reaching more schools and settings than ever before and our Artistic Director, Trisha Lee has just finished writing a book about Helicopter Stories which is due to be published later this year by Routledge.
We are all very pleased and proud to see and hear from so many settings and schools that are using Helicopter Stories and can't wait to see where it goes next.
