Program Description

Event Details

As our city moves into the many unknowns of life with COVID-19, the Denver Public Library has partnered with StoryCenter to create a supportive, online space where we can gather together as a community to share our personal struggles and moments of courage. StoryCenter facilitators will draw on their experience with trauma-informed methods to help participants tell and share their personal stories of life in these unprecedented times. We will explore moments of daily experience in Denver that have either challenged us or lifted our spirits. The 60-minute storytelling workshop it will include:

  • A grounding meditation
  • A writing prompt and writing time
  • Breakout rooms with group sharing and directed feedback (one gratitude/one curiosity from each participant)
  • Rejoining of the large group with time for a large group sharing
  • Closing meditation

Some participants will get the option of having their story saved and archived by the library to document the experience of living with COVID in Denver.

Registration required by clicking on this link https://www.storycenter.org/dpl-storytelling-webinar or emailing librarian Amy DelPo at adelpo@denverlibrary.org.
