The Big Why Panel: Historical Storytelling meets H...

The Big Why Panel: Historical Storytelling meets H...

Presented by Story Crossroads and Utah Humanities at Online/Virtual Space

This Virtual Panel would delve into the “whys” of this method of connecting as human beings of historical presentations. People needed a way to connect and be unified again by seeing and hearing people’s stories that may or may not share the same views.  We would then compare to how popular this method is today and what we can expect of this in the future.  How will we be able to “walk in their shoes” as is the meaning of Chautauqua storytelling?

Dr. Caroliese Frink Reed is well-versed in the storytelling scene and has degrees in Social Studies and African American Studies that weaves with the experience of the other three panelists:  Sheila Arnold, Darci Tucker, and Brian “Fox” Ellis.  These three have decades worth of experience in performing historical stories through 60+ characters from colonial days to yesterday.

We thank the funding from Utah Humanities and many other businesses and individuals. Join us in the support by donating today!
