When are painful experiences also sort of funny? How can telling stories about our troubles — from systemic discrimination to bad haircuts — help us to better understand them, and each other? Join us to explore these questions at a storytelling workshop on Friday, March 8, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. 

Our guest, local storyteller and recent Concordia English graduate Francesca Esguerra will perform for us then guide participants to draft and (for those who want) share our own micro-stories, drawing on exercises inspired by Confabulation’s “The Shortest Story” concept. Snacks will be served.

Sponsored by the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture, the workshop is free and open to all Concordia students, faculty, staff, and the Montreal community.

As space is limited, email Danielle Bobker to register.
