Workshop: Healing Divides through Storytelling

October 6 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Storytelling is a surprisingly flexible tool. It can entertain, inspire, inform, and even heal. Building on the use of storytelling as a healing practice in communities, schools, health care facilities, and religious institutions, Sheila will demonstrate how stories can help us heal divides and create a more inclusive and equitable world. The session will begin with a conversation-sparking story, then Sheila will teach participants how to find stories, use them to facilitate discussion, and create spaces where they can be received.

Professional storyteller and teaching artist Sheila Arnold has been leading workshops since 1998 when working for Colonial Williamsburg. She is known to lead workshops like she tells stories — with engagement, creativity, and empathy.
