The annual WAC Kitchen Party Fundraiser is always a hit! For an East Coast, foot stompin’, family good time, come down to The Cove for live music, yummy food, our silent auction, and more. All proceeds go directly to WAC events.
You will hear one or two good stories and take part in a number of participatory exercises that will help you discover yourself as a teller. As well there will be information about how to get started and where to find good stories. While the workshop will be based in traditional material, it will help you grow as a teller no matter what kind of material you want to tell.
A morning for discovering some great stories, for finding out about what makes them great, and to learn a bit about how you might be a great storyteller yourself.
Bring open ears, hearts and minds (along with a snack!) for all the energy you will need to fuel this grand adventure.
