Sharing the Fire Saturday workshop

The Sharing the Fire Saturday workshop about C@W was held in a hotel room- no beds, thankfully, so we had SOME room, not much! This was because of the last minute change of venue for the entire conference. We all had to make do to some extent! C@W tellers Mahrukh, Ilyssa and Rishi rose to the occasion, as usual, and each told their stories beautifully. They joined their moms and Marni and me in answering questions from the audience.
Gert Johnson has been corresponding with some attendees who indicated they'd like to think about starting a youth interfaith storytelling program in their own areas of the world~ this was our intent with the workshop, and we're thrilled to get this started!!

Sharing the Fire Showcase 3/17/12

Ben, Adtiya and Emily wowed the filled ballroom at the Sharing the Fire Northeast Storytelling Conference Sunday morning showcase. Afterwards, they were caught in a mad crush of fans! it was fun for all- we were so proud of them and all they've accomplished. The audiences at Sharing the Fire couldn't have been better.
On Saturday, Mahrukh, Ilyssa and Rishi and their stories were a wonderful addition to a CAW workshop that Marni and I did on the history and future of CAW. Pictures to follow in the next post!
