WMNF is pleased to partner with the University of South Florida School of Theatre and Dance to present a free two-weekend Community Storytelling Workshop.

Remember, Write and Tell: Interweaving the Person and the Community through Storytelling and Song

USF Theatre professor and noted area actor, Fanni Green, will show listeners how to tell your own story through oral history or poetry, and how to help your family and friends tell stories.

The vision of the Community Workshop is to promote diversity, history, education and community through storytelling.

The workshop will engage participants in exercises and improvisations that explore personal journey, shared histories, family and community stories.

If you remember when WMNF was honored to be part of NPR's StoryCorps project, this is another way that you can learn to help a friend or family member share their history, your family history, or the history of your community.

It's part of how USF is preparing for the exciting premiere of "the road weeps, the well runs dry." This new play by Marcus Gardley explores Black Seminole history and mythology. The heritage of Black Seminoles was created by escaped slaves and Free Blacks who married members of Florida's Seminole tribe. The play is sponsored by New York's Lark Play Development Center.

This free workshop takes place on two Saturday mornings

August 3 from 10 a.m.-noon and August 10 from 10 a.m.-noon

We can only accommodate 16 people. Participants are asked to attend both sessions.

With the permission of participants, segments of the workshop will be videotaped for USF's promotional and grant reporting purposes. WMNF will also record stories that participants would like to share for broadcast.

To RSVP, email Amanda Clark at the USF Theatre Department - amandaclark@usf.edu or call 813-974-9108.
