Long before the invention of television, a storyteller would wander the streets and call children to listen to heroic stories illustrated by a portable box with peep holes: the Wonder Box (in Arabic: Sandok El ‘Agab). In this workshop, the participants created prototype devices for five magical stories using recycled materials.
