Saving Our Planet, One Story At A Time

Join us as renowned teller Judith Black leads participants in an interactive workshop and learn how to:

  • Mine personal stories and observations to address concerns about our stressed bio-sphere.

  • Create original stories that will inform and motivate.

  • Develop skills at story shaping and presentation.

New perspectives on history, familial dysfunction, aging, and our disintegrating environment are all fodder for Judith’s tales. Featured on stages from the Montreal Comedy Festival to The Smithsonian Institution, and 13 times at the National Storytelling Festival, she is the winner of the Oracle and Brother Blue Awards.

It will run promptly from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. in the Visitor’s Center of Howell Farm. This event is handicapped accessible. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the festival.

How to enhance and effect change in our lives and the world around us through telling stories.

Judith Black is one of America’s finest storytellers. She is the winner of the Oracle Award, storytelling's most coveted laurel. She makes people think and laugh through retellings of history from new perspectives, tickling familial dysfunction, and ironic explorations of aging. She has performed at many venues including the Montreal Comedy Festival, The Smithsonian Institution, and in Africa.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
