STORYTELLING WORKSHOP IN THE GALLERY

Despite what you may have heard, it is actually stories that make the world go round!
We’ve been telling stories for as long as we’ve been doing anything. in fact, you could say Storytelling is what makes us human. Whether it is by a bedside, around a table, behind a lectern or from a stage, it’s what we do, it’s who we are, it’s all we are. The stories we tell become our stories, and our stories become the currency with which we connect, commune and collaborate.
Join Storyteller Brad Woods for a workshop that is equal parts lecture, conversation, and performance.
Come prepared to discover and discuss the power, the beauty and the art of a story well told. But mostly, just come to hear some really good stories!
First come seating. Complimentary tea and a bagged snack will be available.
Covid-19 safety protocols are in effect.
We encourage guests to consider remaining masked while attending the talk, however this is optional.
If the workshop is cancelled for any reason due to Public Health concerns, refunds will be given in full. Please contact us for more information.
