Thanks to a grant from the Cambridge Arts Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, StoryStream will present a new spring program, FINDING OUR VOICES, a pilot project to create monthly neighborhood storytelling gatherings for immigrant residents of Cambridge. Participants will share folktales from their cultures as well as their personal stories.
The storytelling circles will be coordinated by Community Engagement Team workers who represent various ethnic and language groups and work with families of similar countries of origin. Professional storyteller Jo Radner will train the CET workers and they will recruit project participants. Stories will be recorded (with permission) and participants will be invited to present stories at the StoryStream Storytelling Tent at the Cambridge River Festival, June 4, 2011.
