I just wrote you a long message, but it suddenly disappeared! In any case, I was telling you that I just visited your website and saw that you live in North Carolina and are engaged with story for change...which has been part of my own life and work as well....I started out as a community organizer with Cesar Chavez and the farmworker movement.
I just did my first public storytelling about those years at the Asheville Wordfest....and for the last two years have co-hosted the Staging Change workshop at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough Tennessee linking community storytelling and dialogue (the StoryBridge)
It seems we have much to share....come visit! We live not far from Asheville. Here's a little article and short video on what's been unfolding since we moved back to our "family farm" from California.
Welcome, Lynden! You may have met Juanita and David, co-founders of the World Cafe, who live in your part of the world...
You are most welcome here - for more information have a look at the material in the Orientation tab, and you may just want to explore this community site. I'm here if you have any questions and am happy to help.
