‘Swapping Stories’ training offered

The Arts Partnership will again offer training in “Swapping Stories,” a story-telling program that celebrates the histories and stories of people in the community.
Teaching artist Judy Thibault Klevins will lead training sessions from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 5 and from 9:30 a.m. to noon March 6 in the community room at Glenwood Middle School.
Participants will lead a Swapping Stories event with members of their own organizations from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 6.
The training is appropriate to develop programming for nonprofit organizations and businesses as well as churches, senior living centers and home-school groups.
Klevins’ program refocuses on the art of storytelling. The program also aims to improve oral communication, literacy and presentation skills and to bridge cultural gaps.
The cost of the training is $25 per organization, good for one or two participants. The fee includes lunch on March 6, materials, follow-up support and the rights to the Swapping Stories program for future use. Registration is requested by Feb. 14.
The training is offered in cooperation with Findlay City Schools and the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation.
