Time travel through stories! Discover your voice! Connect to the rich and ancient tradition of oral storytelling! This class will be empowering, warm, and full of laughter; it will be a great post-holiday event for the whole family! You can use this as an opportunity to discover your story telling voice. Children interested in learning to tell stories and their parents are enthusiastically welcome. Recommended ages 7 or 8 and up. Elders are also enthusiastically encouraged to join.
In this three part class series, master storyteller, Georgia Churchill, will teach the art of storytelling in the oral tradition.Georgia holds the philosophy that a story is a portal that opens to worlds of both knowledge and delight. Throughout all three sessions, Georgia will pepper in stories of her own repertoire, revealing the power of storytelling and the way that stories are windows into the time and place from which they emerge.
For 43 years Georgia has been telling oral tradition tales from many cultures to people from ages 3 to 101. “Georgia Churchill is a virtuoso in the intimate art of storytelling.”For this class, all you need is your voice, and willingness to explore a wonderful new medium. Through Georgia’s instruction, participants will be empowered to find their voice and discover that we can all tell, entertain, and connect through stories.
Proposals will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
The Southern Oregon Guild of Artists & Artisans is seeking proposals from creative people in the Illinois Valley and Josephine County to deliver online workshops on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm this fall, starting in mid-October, as part of our "Creative Community" series.
We use the term "arts" and "artists" in a broad sense, encompassing all forms of creative practice and thinking. And, you don't have to be an expert!
We are looking for proposals that can happen via Zoom and are interactive, engaging, and encourage connections among participants. Your idea might involve just one Zoom meeting or several. We aim to create opportunities for exploration and to strengthen the creative community in southern Oregon’s Josephine County, especially in the Illinois Valley.
The Guild will provide support in coming up with ideas, facilitation, Zoom access, promotion and outreach, and a small stipend, depending on participation. Workshops will be offered for free with a suggested donation; 10% of the donations will go to the presenter with a $50 minimum guaranteed.
