What are the stories that shape and define your life? How do you uncover them, tell them, perform them and share them with others? This workshop teaches storytelling as a path to both personal and community development.
Stories build community and help us make sense of ourselves and the world we live in. We need that now more than ever. In crafting and telling stories of our lived experience, we learn to explore the life experiences that have shaped and defined us as individuals, and telling our stories also connects us to others and reveals our shared humanity.
