Telling Our Stories
Participants will learn the importance of creating their own narratives in order to expand their artistry and opportunities for artistry now and in the future.
The Telling Our Stories workshop will consist of a speech that incorporates: poetry, performance and activities. Youth will be led through an activity that challenges youth to think critically about an existing narrative. Youth will then be facilitated in an activity that will guide youth brainstorming their own narratives. Selected youth will be encouraged to share their brainstormed narratives to the larger group.
