ABOUT [Our Stories]

[Our Stories] is a month-long workshop held from January 9-February 3 for New Orleans teens interested in theatre, journalism, storytelling, writing, and performing. [Our Stories] seeks to make space for teens to creatively and artistically express their joys, frustrations, questions, and ideas collaboratively and in their own words.

Participants learn about storytelling and generate original material gathered through interviews with family, community members, friends, and each other about experiences in their lives. The material will be woven together with help from Teaching Artist Helen Jaksch into a performance at the end of the month that will be open to family and friends.

Questions should be sent to Director of Arts Education Helen Jaksch at education@southernrep.com
