In this workshop, Turner, Founder and Creative Director of StoryMuse, will guide participants through storytelling basics, including structure, vulnerability, details and change. Participants will practice deep listening and cultivate personal stories as a means for how to build empathy and advocate for themselves through storytelling. Participants will explore themes like “ableism, dignity, and resources,” and how they inform our advocacy. In the end, participants will practice telling stories to legislators and in other advocacy environments.
