Ranjan De, a core group member of the Delhi Storytellers Network, is an illustrator, puppeteer and oral story reader, teller and creator of funny and whacky stories. And he is constantly busy with his hands creating and co-creating funky things with kids of all sizes and ages with all kinds of house hold junk that he finds all over the place. He has lots of learnshops and creates lots of fun learning activities, under the label of BridgingGaps in India.
Delhi Storytellers’ Network (DSN) is a platform for professional storytellers based in the city and the NCR to congregate, collaborate, and commit to nurturing and developing the art form by exploring individual and collective possibilities. While enabling individual professional growth, it is committed to working with a focus on widening the scope of Storytelling to empower individuals and communities. The network is a mix of oral and visual storytellers, performers, dancers, musicians, artists, designers, writers and journalists and other individuals who use storytelling in its various avatars.
DSN has 12 active members…and we are adding more every month… and we have been working with schools, corporates, NGOs and International bodies like the UNICEF, publishing houses, media houses and design institutions. DSN has a cumulative experience of 130 years.
