Families Tell Stories

Storytelling
Families Tell Stories
Sat, November 24th, 2012 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Bring your family and join together to tell your story! A storyteller and videographer will guide family members young and old through the process of group storytelling and then record your family’s story to share again and again. The storyteller will first model telling a personal family story. Participants will then identify a story they want to tell and discuss how to focus on setting the scene, pacing, details to highlight, the rhythm of the story, and the story arc. When families are ready to be recorded, they will tell their story as a group.
