ROSE stories believes in the power of storytelling. Stories represent different believe systems. Storytelling is the sharing of those belief systems, offering new perspectives on the world as it is. Each story bears the potential to open up a new world as well as a sense of belonging in that world for both storyteller and his or her audience. We find new storytellers in the Netherlands and often they find us. Together we tell stories that create spaces for dialogue. ROSE stories takes the lead by guiding the storyteller’s business, offering new perspectives, unexpected insights and connecting people. In the short period of our existence as an organisation we have managed to successfully publish and produce stories in various forms, among others cookbooks, children's books, theatrical performances and documentaries as well as talent development programs.
