Story Event for Folkies


Story Event for Folkies


I had the following from Kevin Cordi. For those of you who do not know Kevin he is one of the foremost storytellers in the world. No exaggeration. I have know and worked with Kevin for a few years now and his knowledge of storytelling is immense. I have been involved with the Storybox and I can tell you it is a very rewarding exercise.


If you want to know more then come along on the 24 November and join in the excitement.


Together We Make a Difference Through

Featuring:
Kevin Cordi, StoryTeller Artist-in-Residence

The MCC welcomes Kevin Cordi as our StoryTeller Artist-in-Residence this year! Kevin will be available at MCC events throughout the year, helping Ohio State and Columbus community members craft and tell their personal stories of transformation and collecting stories for the OSU StoryBox. In June, this StoryBox will then be shipped to a new location someplace in the world.

Kevin Cordi is a nationally-known Professional Storyteller and OSU PhD candidate who has told and taught stories in over 40 states, England, Japan, Scotland, and most recently Singapore. His story work has been commissioned by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Newsweek, and the International Storytelling Conference. He will share traditional and contemporary stories about transformation. Kevin will emcee an open mike afterwards where you will have a chance to share your stories and celebrate the Story Box Project.

The MCC invites YOU to share your story with us this year as a part of the OSU StoryBox.
