Process Series Remembrance & Renewal Storytelling Festival (Day 5)
February 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
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’s Department of American Studies, will present a Storytelling Festival February 17-21, 2021, drawing on the skills of some of the nation’s most prominent and diverse storytelling practitioners.
The Festival will feature both traditional and contemporary stories from nationally and locally known storytellers. The programming will focus on diverse voices, all addressing these ideas: How can storytelling illuminate the world as it exists now?; Can storytelling build community and create cultural and institutional change?; What can a community do to invite a diversity of voices to share personal and cultural stories that have shaped the way they live and the way we understand others?; Can Storytelling be an effective platform to battle systemic racism?
Day five of the festival features three sets of performances:
2 p.m. – Sam Gates, Ashley Lumpkin, Simon Tam, Dovie Thomason
4:30 p.m. – Charlotte Blake Alston, Brenda Aoki, Daniel Reyes
7 p.m. – Talk Circle w/Vivette Jeffries, Andrew Aghapour, Ashley Lumpkin, Carlos Robson
