Storiez: Creating Narratives with Urban Youth Impacted by Trauma
Tuesday, January 14, 2020 @ 9:30 AM - 12:30 PMFree
This workshop will combine theory and practice using the Storiez approach developed by Dr. Meagan Corrado to use narrative as a strategy for healing trauma. Designed for teaching artists working in community settings, Dr. Corrado will give an overview of how trauma impacts urban young people and brief context on treatment approaches. She will then lead us through the Storiez process, a 9-step framework to assist inner city youth as they create, voice, and honor their life narratives. Participants will use the Storiez process in the creation of their own collage narratives although the process can be applied to other art forms. Artists in all disciplines are welcome.
