Kathalaya set up the International Academy of Storytelling, the first and only independent and globally recognized academy for storytelling, to supplement their work in the field. The courses offered by the Academy are open to aspiring storytellers from any background, from teachers to NGO representatives to corporate and professionals.
The International Academy of Storytelling (IAST) was conceptualised as a mechanism to spread the art of storytelling around the world and create a platform for amateur and professional storytellers as well as professionals in other fields like corporate, education and arts to gain the requisite technical skill that would help propel them into the world of storytelling.
IAST is the only Institute in India offering professional courses in Storytelling, and the courses are now conducted mainly at our Bengaluru centre. We also now offer courses at Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Chennai, Himalayas and Dubai.
IAST has since its beginning trained over 85,000+ storytellers across the world. IAST delivers 2 levels of certification including the coveted ‘Graduate Diploma in Storytelling’. The courses are specially designed to help transition individuals into professional level Storytellers and communicators. The various modules are Customized by experts who have decades of experience in storytelling and related fields of education, leadership and communication.
The IAST courses are affiliated to:
In addition to the core diploma, IAST offers a wide range of programs for individuals, children and corporate. Each program is unique and designed to focus on a multitude of cultural components, skill building, personality development and leadership qualities. We are constantly evolving as an institution and introducing innovative methodologies to make Storytelling more relevant to the current world and lifestyle without losing the essence, heritage and legacy of stories that have been passed on for generations.
