Storytelling/ Folklore Festival:
Remembrance and Renewal
Recognizing the power and potential of storytelling in its many forms at this pivotal moment in American culture and politics, the Process Series in partnership with UNC American Studies, will present a Storytelling Festival. Drawing on the skills of some of the nation’s most prominent and diverse storytelling practitioners, we will feature eight diverse, nationally known storytellers, as well as faculty and student storytellers.
Visiting storytellers include Dovie Thomason, Andrew Ali Aghapour, Senora Lynch (2007 Heritage Award Winner), Simon Tam and others. There will also be featured faculty storytellers including Samuel R. Gates (*part of The Faculty Series) and Milbre Burch.
Co-sponsored by the Department of American Studies, Arts Everywhere, and IAH
