We are all Storytellers at Heart – Storytelling Workshop
Personal stories can build greater understanding and a sense of community. Such stories are often rich with meaning and poignant, and sometimes evocative. As a step
toward greater understanding and building community, UUCC, along with co-sponsor the Howard County Conservancy, presents a Storytelling Workshop. The workshop will be facilitated by Leigh Tillman, a graduate of the UUCC Young Religious Unitarian Universalists program, and a professional storyteller, trainer, and facilitator. Through her work, she has seen first-hand the power of personal stories in building community. Tillman says, “At the very essence of our lives, there are stories. We are sharing them with one another every day. These stories foster connection, put us in touch with our humanness, and compel us to act.”
In this workshop, you will learn how to tell your story better and about the craft of how to hone your story. Our hope is that through making the space to hear and share our personal stories, our understanding of our community's larger story is enriched and our curiosity is piqued to learn more of one another's tales. No matter if the stories you tell are for friends and family or for work, we all can become better storytellers.
