In this podcast, we present the April 5 special storytelling event as a part of TechSoup’s Storymakers month! This session will feature our own Free Library’s Maker Jawn, a project-based creative program for our community.
Maker Jawn aims to provide a unique space for community members in North Philadelphia Free Libraries, where self-directed experimental and experiential learning is promoted through a focus on creativity, critical thinking and skill-building.
In this fun and interactive workshop, we’ll learn:
• basic elements of storytelling
• how to craft our own stories, using an example
• how to animate our stories
• and how storytelling can help causes
Maker Jawn will also share examples of member stories, so we can see storytelling in action. After this month’s meetup, you’ll be ready to share stories yourself – whether they’re your organization’s story, your volunteers’, your clients’, or your own.
