Storytelling: Art for Change
Art For Change invites students from immigrant backgrounds to participate in a storytelling workshop offered as part of the “Sed: A Trail of Thirst” Exhibit at Carlitos Cafe and Galeria.
Workshop Description: “Dangerous Storytelling”
Erasmo Guerra, winner of the Lambda Literary Award for his first novel, “Between Dances,” will lead this storytelling workshop for high-school to college age students interested in developing stories about growing up in the legal borderlands of U.S. immigration policy. These stories
will be developed as works of creative nonfiction or fiction. The workshop will be conducted in English for a diverse group of students while emphasizing Chicano/Latino narrative techniques. Students will have the opportunity to incorporate video and photography into their storytelling performances.
The workshop begins on March 3rd and meets for five Saturday
afternoons through March 31st for a final performance at Carlito¹s
