Workshops and Residencies for Youth
To learn to read and write students must develop a good oral language base, yet the skills involved in talking and listening are rarely taught. These skills are an inherent part of storytelling.
The students will develop fluency and confidence in their oral language abilities. They will also learn active and attentive listening skills and visual communication skills. Public speaking skills at an appropriate level will be focused upon.
'My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake,
it will be the artists who give them their spirit back.'
