Justin Flowers has been hosting Storytelling events in the Chicagoland area for many years. Most recently he has brought Storytelling to the inmate population at the Cook County Correctional Institute.
All of us retain and create stories of our lives and those told to us by family and friends. We share emotional conflicts, accomplishments and practical situations that help us grow. As we re-tell our tales humor often breaks through in ways that we didn’t anticipate. Hearing others speak and relate intimate and life stories make us all realize we are people sharing the same planet with similar but different stories to share.
Justin will help you mature your storytelling capabilities
This is a weekend intensive starting at 6:00 PM Friday evening and continuing on both Saturday and Sunday 12:00- PM - 6:00 PM.
