Telling Your Story
June 8 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
An event every week that begins at 2:00pm on Thursday, repeating until June 22, 2017
It is a joy to create shared memories in stories. Within a family, storytelling undoes the damage of haste while it builds family connections, communicates values, and offers a context for facts and information. Join storyteller Carol Birch to learn about presenting stories more vibrantly. The workshop begins at 2 p.m. and runs for two hours. This is a beginning storytelling workshop to introduce techniques to: read/speak more expressively; bring setting and character to life; and animate stories with a singular power – YOU!
The workshop is based on Birch’s award winning book THE WHOLE STORY: USING THE IMAGINATION TO BUILD STORIES. It will be available for purchase in the Gallery for $18.00.
Recipient of the National Storytelling Network’s Circle of Excellence Award, Birch’s books and recordings have earned multiple awards. She’s traveled across the nation, including nine featured performances at the National Storytelling Festival. She’s received two grants from NEH, performed on invitational tours to Australia, Europe, and Singapore, and led five storytelling tours through Ireland, Scotland and England. Media appearances include ABC’s Nightline, CBS’s Morning Show and National Public Radio.
