How would it feel as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in Vermont to have a storytelling class centered around you?! This class creates space for BIPOC voices to be heard, finding connection and a sense of belonging through shared narratives of resilience, BIPOC joy, melanin magic, vibrant cultures, surviving, thriving, and more! Our intention is to provide our local BIPOC community a storytelling space to learn and affirm one another, minimizing the impact of microaggressions and harm.
In this BIPOC affinity space, one can practice the art of live storytelling in various ways. Learn how to structure, edit, and perform your own story. This class will be instructed by Ferene Paris Meyer.
This class will be hosted online on Zoom.
