June 2017

Milbre Burch will teach a three-hour intensive at the National Storytelling Network Conference in Kansas City

June 28 - 2

The National Storytelling Network Conference takes place from June 29-July 2, 2017 in Kansas City. The conference theme is "All Our Voices: Stories of Immigration and Migration."

During the conference, Milbre Burch will be leading a three-hour intensive entitled "Acknowledging All Our Voices: Listening to America's Immigration/Migration Stories." Using a workbook approach to unearth participants' own stories of migration and immigration, this hands-on workshop is intended to bring all our voices to the table, to listen, to tell and to reflect on lived experiences that may not sound exactly alike, but that capture the breadth and depth of our national story.

The schedule is still being developed. Look for details at http://www.storynet.org/conference/index.html
