Audio/Visual Storytelling Scribes

Scribes will be immersed in the diverse art of storytelling. Together with Greg and Rachel, Scribes will engage dynamically with their senses and surroundings, and participate in arts-driven field trips, writing activities, craft exercises, and exposure to a diverse range of artistic forms and artists. Scribes will explore the urban environment as they learn to experience the world as storytellers and are sure to find something to connect with and something new to try in this multi-genre exploration of craft and words. The session will culminate in a community show where Scribes will have the opportunity to share their work! All skill levels welcome.
