Storytelling workshop in September

Interested in stories and storytelling?  Next month Ilsley library will host a storytelling workshop.
Full disclosure: your humble blogger is one of the organizers.

From the press release:
Ilsley Public Library and STORYMATTERS, a community storytelling group, today announced a free, interactive workshop to be held Sept. 13, 2014, from 10:00 AM to 12:15 PM in the Community Meeting Room of the Ilsley Public Library.  This workshop is aimed at both those interested in storytelling and those interested in positive social change in our community.  The half-day session will include showing a mix of video clips filmed by and about members of our community, discussing how stories work within a community, and brainstorming projects of story-gathering and sharing, all with the goal of promoting positive change within Middlebury and Addison County.  This workshop is free and open to the public, but may prove of special interest to staff and volunteers of area non-profits. 
On the workshop presenter:
This workshop will be facilitated by Alisa Del Tufo, storyteller, oral historian and founder of the Threshold Collaborative. The Threshold Collaborative uses stories to illuminate and share the  experience, insight, knowledge and hopes of people striving for justice  and peace. This work creates opportunities for people to participate in community focused, relationship rich, creative initiatives that transform the ways we think of each other and ways we envision change.
