Topic category: Storytelling for Peace
TEDx Talks

As president of the International Storytelling Center, Kiran Singh Sirah is very much tapped into the power that stories have to change the world. In his talk, Kiran argues that to achieve peace in our world, we can be the story that we want to see in the world, and we can help others too, just by listening. We are, each of us, storytellers. To tell our stories is more than just a human right. It is a gift we can give the world.


Kiran Singh Sirah is President of the International Storytelling Center (ISC), an educational and cultural institution dedicated to enriching the lives of people around the world through storytelling. ISC organizes the world’s premiere storytelling event, the National Storytelling Festival, and supports applied storytelling initiatives across a wide variety of industries. Prior to his appointment at ISC, Kiran developed a number of award-­winning peace-building programs in cultural centers across the UK. As an artist, folklorist, teacher, and advocate for social justice, he has used the power of human creativity to establish dialogue. An advisory member to UNESCO and a Rotary Peace fellow, he has developed educational programs and publications, articles, talks and conference papers about interdisciplinary approaches to relationship building in communities and around the globe.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
