About us

Berättarministeriet is a non-profit foundation that runs writing centers for children aged between 8 and 18 in socially disadvantaged areas in Sweden.

Berättarministeriet is organised as a tri-sectorial cooperation between volunteers, governmental bodies and the private sector. Which is a unique way to approach challenges the schools and teachers face in these areas. Berättarministeriet offers creative writing workshops, five days a week, and all activities are free of charge. In addition Berättarministeriet has developed school curriculum programs that equip teachers with learning methodologies and inspiring ways to teach.

Through storytelling Berättarministeriet inspires children to unleash imagination and build self-confidence. In doing so the foundation contribute to greater equality in society. Our vision is "A Sweden where all children and youth conquer the written language and can thus actively participate in society". Our work is inspired by the American nonprofit organization 826 National and Dilsa Demirbag-Sten, journalist and author, is one of the founders and executive director of Berättarministeriet.
