More information to come. Whether we’re telling folktales, personal stories or literary tales, cultural awareness is one of the necessary tools in a storyteller’s toolbox. Are we reinforcing bad stereotypes? Should we use accents and dialects? Who may tell stories of other cultures? How do we research cultural backgrounds? In a lively mix of discussion and participatory games, we’ll look at these questions and more. This class is part of the Storytelling Certificate Program from Mid-Continent Public Library and MCC-Maple Woods.
