CenterstAGE returns May 7th with the newest section of visual memoir classes for adults ages 55 plus! With the support of E.A. Michelson Philanthropy, this course will take place in-person at Pillsbury House Theatre, with social distancing and mask-wearing required.
Saturdays from 9:30am – 11:00 AM | May 7th – July 2nd
Held in – person.
Taught by Beverly Cottman, Master Storyteller and Masanari Kawahara, PHT Teaching Artist.
In this class, gather with a small group of fellow writers – no experience necessary! – and explore the idea of “telling” your memoir. Create your story, learn and practice it, then tell it! Confidently share some of your life experiences with those you love or total strangers.
Storytelling Memoirs is led by interdisciplinary artist Beverly Cottman. As storyteller Auntie Beverly, she delivers wisdom of the ages by telling stories, folktales, and fables rooted in African and African-American traditions as well as cultural tales from around the world.
Socially-distanced classes will take place in the spacious Pillsbury House Theatre lobby from 9:30am-11:00am on the following Saturdays:
May 7, 14, 21 & 28
June 4, 11, 18 & 25
July 2 will be the sharing.
Those who are unvaccinated may join from Zoom (laptop rentals available).
