Thank you to all who are responding to the question we, along with the International Storytelling Center, are asking at their upcoming festival, October 4-6, 2013, in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Early responses are already coming in for our question:
How might the art and power of storytelling contribute to global peace and collaboration in a troubled world?
From Liz Weir, Northern Ireland 09/25/13
“In my work in Northern Ireland over the past years of violence and in this post-conflict situation, I have worked with storytelling to help people learn to listen to each other. Through listening comes understanding.”
