Indoors, and Outdoors, and Zoom! Oh My! – Flexible Storytelling for the 21st Century
Storytelling in the 21st century (and during a pandemic!) poses new challenges. But these challenges are also opportunities to grow our skills and expand our audience! In this workshop, we’ll explore how to adapt our storytelling to different settings – from in-person indoor and outdoor programs to Zoom and even hybrid events. Tackling such topics as story selection, involving the audience, technological considerations and safety protocols, we’ll share ideas for how to make the most out of any program, no matter the method of delivery.
