British Council, Bengaluru, invites you to a story writing session for children called WANDERING INTO THE WONDERLAND.
It has been believed since antiquity that when reality fails us, we tend to move towards the fantastic and the magical. Considering that life is a tiring toil for children as well as adults, we must start working together to look for new escapades. The lofty routes can be new explorations, or looking back at roads travelled long time back, for we do not know what lies ahead and also behind.
A classic work of children’s literature, ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, continues to rule hearts even today. Playing upon the tropes of magic and adventure, this novel inspires the readers to be brave seekers, to be new heroes, fearless and indomitable in every sense! What Lewis Carroll intended was to give us a chance to believe in coming back victorious from every battle before us, be it a real one or a reverie. We shall walk the same path together, and in our attempt to re-read Carroll, fall in love with Alice, admire her, follow her and if needed BE HER IN OUR OWN WAYS!
In the session, we will read excerpts from the book, discuss it, and write new narratives of Alice! It shall be a new adventure for us to play with words, emotions and thus bond with each other over the lines of creativity and connectivity!
Age Group: 8 – 14 years
Fee: Rs 300 per child
