NEWS RELEASE
ELORA CENTRE FOR THE ARTS
*************************
Stories entertain and inform us, but they also help us understand who we are, where we come from and where we are going, so it would only make sense that we should want to tell good stories.  Join professional Storyteller Brad Woods to discuss and discover what makes a good story and how to tell it.  Through the Art of Storytelling, Brad will use traditional, original and personal stories to provide an opportunity for you to engage, to interact and to learn, but mostly to just sit back, relax and listen.

An ideal introduction to those new to the Art of Storytelling and a great opportunity for those wanting to dig a little deeper.

$35 plus HST (complimentary tea and a bagged snack will be available during a short break)

Small group, socially distanced in the main gallery at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Safety protocols in effect.

Maximum 20 participants.  First come seating.  (more spaces may be added as permitted by Public Health).  Proof of vaccination required.

Minimum 4 participants required to run the workshop.
