RISE will deliver its first storytelling workshops this August, in partnership with Chicago?s 2nd Story who deliver unique storytelling experiences that provoke and challenge.

The workshops are a facilitated introduction to performance storytelling, a movement sweeping the US.

Performance storytelling is a combination of page, stage and sound that takes a personal narrative and workshops it through literary techniques, then molds these into high-quality performance monologue pieces. At the conclusion of the workshop participants may have the option of recording their finished pieces at RISE?s Recording studio.

The exciting initiative sees RISE and 2nd Story develop stories from our community that deserve to be heard, acknowledged and shared. The workshops are open to RISE members and people of refugee, asylum seeker and migrant backgrounds. People of colour are also encouraged to attend.

When: Saturday August 17th
Time: 1-4pm
Place: RISE Refugee
