Community Storytelling Workshop

As a followup to her afternoon discussion, Dr. Cheng is hosting a workshop to help people tell their stories. This workshop is limited to 20 people. Registration opens on March 1.

Do you want to tell stories to connect with people emotionally and to create intimate communities with others? Do you want to speak your truths out loud unapologetically and with a firm commitment to your lived experiences? There are two parts to this workshop. During the first half of the session, Dr. Cheng will host a workshop discussing the central tenets of the art form and some tips on crafting stories and performing. The second half of the workshop will be a practice session where participants will be able to apply their learning and practice sharing with the group in a safe space. This session requires pre-registration and will be kept small to create a safe space for all. Use this link to register:

Note: Participants from this workshop will also have the opportunity to participate in a showcase open to the general public on April 20 should they desire. Dr. Cheng will work with participants to craft their stories and prepare them for performances via Zoom in the month after this workshop.

This program is held in collaboration with the Ellwood House Museum as part of the Arts in Action project. Funding is make possible through the DeKalb County Community Mental Health Board.
