The Storytelling Workshop is a weeklong course DEVELOPED BY HANNAH EZZELL AND CHLOE TREAT that explores the innate human relationship to story. Using the Hero’s Journey as a framework, WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS create a collective myth. This myth becomes the basis of the curriculum. Through the tradition of oral storytelling, the group develops empathy for different archetypes and perspectives. They practice seeing diversity in characters that are viewed in a singular or limited way, and they use story as a conduit to confront issues in their own lives. The storytelling workshop empowers its participants as storytellers with the aim of creating a more democratic storytelling world.
