Workshop: The Voices and Faces Project presents “Our Stories Are Our Power” led by Marline Johnson and Caity-Shea Violette
June 8 from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The Voices and Faces Project, an award-winning storytelling project, travels across North America and Africa to bring its immersive, two-day “Stories We Tell writing program to communities across the globe. At this year’s Lit Fest, they’ll debut “Our Stories Are Our Power,” a one-hour mini-workshop geared toward youth (ages 13 – 25) who want to use their personal stories to create political change. Poets, fiction writers, spoken word artists, aspiring playwrights and any youth with a powerful story to tell (that’s you!) are encouraged to attend.
An artist, art therapist, spoken-word poet, and activist, Marline Johnson
