Story Arts is partnering with Normandale Community College to offer a day-long celebration of storytelling on Saturday, September 15! Come revel in a full day of workshops, story concerts, open mics, and a story swap. Two of the in-depth morning workshops (led by Michael Dorer and Katie Knutson) are ideal for educators, who will receive CEU credit. The other morning workshop (co-led by Laura Packer and Loren Niemi) is designed for business and non-profit professionals, community organizers, and advocates. These in-depth sessions require pre-registration - $30 ($28 for SAM members).
At the 4pm closing concert, hear some of the Twin Cities' finest and most diverse storytellers, including performance coach, blogger and storyteller Laura Packer, Greg Pickett whose stories are as lyrical as they are street savvy, Christy Marie Kent, whose stories often explore the complexities of gender and faith, and story slam champion Nancy Donoval, whose repertoire ranges from traditional fairy tales to true tales of trauma and recovery. Hosted by playwright, musician, and poet Khary Jackson.
