Healing Story Alliance is a not-for-profit, educational, arts organization which provides online resources and concert, workshop, and community programming in support of storytelling as a healing art.
You have something to say in a story, but how do you say it without sounding too pushy or opinionated? In this hands-on Zoom workshop, Sue O’Halloran will demonstrate and instruct how she approaches themes of race equity, diversity and inclusion in creating stories that respect, enlighten, and emotionally move your audience members to take action. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your motives for telling socially relevant stories and be given practical ways to overcome the fears all of us have about taking stands. Join us whether you are a veteran activist or you are still discovering what causes call to you.
