Oct 2 Storytelling Workshop

Last Update: 9/28/2013 5:52 PM


Storytelling is what has allowed society to progress and grow. The Story Jam is a concentrated effort to take advantage of this tool to share our experiences. We as Peace Corps volunteers have lived in communities that have thrived on storytelling and now we honor that with Story Jam. Arya Zarrinkelk, (RPCV DR 09-11) who has performed in front of over 1,000 people and played over 200 concerts on three different continents will be hosting a storytelling workshop to prep for a public Story Jam at the end of October. Story Jammers from NorCal's Sept Storyslam in Oakland will also be in the house to drop some stories and some wisdom on how to make your story even richer.

10/2/13 Wed (6:30 PM - 8:00 PM)
201 Mission Street, Ste 2750, San Francisco

RSVP -> Will Spargur, will [AT] norcalpca [DOT] org

Come to the workshop ready to share an experience. It doesn't have to be super polished, just bring it, an open mind, and some enthusiasm and we will have a good time.

Workshop Agenda:
  • 2 Story Jam Vet's will share an experience
  • Breakdown the "it" factors for a powerful story
  • Peer story review
  • Group story review

Please RSVP snacks and drinks will be provided

This event will be followed up with a Oct 16 Practice Slam and finally a Oct 30 Story Slam in SF.
