2/11/20 As part of the annual Chennai Storytelling Festival, international storytellers convene via video conference to discuss “Storytelling in the World Today”
Organized by Eric Miller from the World Storytelling Institute, storytellers from 4 continents convened this morning to discuss the possibilities of video conferencing as a storytelling platform and organizing medium. We were introduced to The Worldwide Virtual Storytelling Guild by New England-based storyteller Hope Lewis. The meeting was part of the 2020 Chennai Storytelling Festival, which featured storytelling revivalist, Laura Simms as a guest educator and featured presenter. We closed the meeting with much momentum around the possibilities for new connections through the guild.
