I’m currently working with diverse college students as they tell their own stories for Out of the Shadows of Minneapolis, a book project funded by the Minnesota State system office. I’ve worked with inter-generational pairs of 5th or 6th graders and elders working together to tell a true story from the elder’s childhood. With VSA MN I created and taught a 6-week long course for adults with mental illness interested in writing about mental health.
I trained through ARTSage’s teaching artist certification program; completing the program required hours of guided reading, training sessions, and observation.
I’m particularly interested in how to approach narrative in multidisciplinary ways, through visual elements as well as the spoken and written word. Approaching hard stories is one of my strengths.
