If I wasn’t already up to my neck in a billion and one commitments in the next few months, I would totally do this. I’d love to know if any bloggers take part in this and move their stories from their blogs to a “storytelling experience.” Since it focuses on downtown L.A., I think this is a natural for the good folks at martini republic, blogdowntown, mayorsam, boi from troy, and of course, LA City Nerd.
During a two-day workshop, participants describe memories and exchange stories of downtown L.A. – stirring images, remarkable people, and distinctive sites, sounds, tastes. Working with and guided by Cornerstone’s professional writers, actors, facilitators, and directors, participants weave this remarkable collection of stories together and at the end of the process, share with friends, family, and invited guests.
Space is limited. Sign up by February 5, 2007.
No prior storytelling experience necessary, must be at least 18 years old to participate. Participants are responsible for own parking costs.
