|Description||Joseph Grady: The Cultural Significance of Storytelling
Storytelling is integral to education and cultural survival. How does story define community? How does it keep cultures intact? What functions does story serve in shaping our understanding of the world? How do we learn about the stories of our history? Joseph Grady will share some stories and draw on his background in social work and theater to lead a discussion about the power of theater, storytelling, and performance, with a focus on Indigenous American stories and perspectives.
