INTERGENERATIONAL FAMILY PROGRAM

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

FREE WRITING PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

Fox, Sparrow, Child, Bear: An Intergenerational Fable-Building Workshop with Jill Stukenberg

Are you familiar with fables? The workshop will begin with an example or two of famous fables from Aesop, with some discussion of why people tell stories like fables. Group members will be guided in individual brainstorming, and then will have time to collaborate—working in their own breakout room—before returning to the larger group, where they may choose to share their fable verbally or with pictures. You may end the workshop with a new family legend, or an idea for a comic.

 

This family workshop is designed to use collaboration as a tool for story building. Please sign up with at least one partner, or a small team. (If you have more than 4 members, consider participating as two groups.) “Intergenerational” groups encouraged (example: a grandparent and grandchild) but not required. The workshop will be designed for children (ages 6 and older) and adults to work together, and it will be designed, using zoom breakout rooms, so team members working from different locations can work together. (Your group member can be in Wisconsin while you are in Arizona!)

 

This program is free but registration is required. To register online, please click here. For other registration options, please call 920.868.1457.
