“An enemy is one whose story we have not heard.” Ms. Gene Knudsen Hoffman

Stories hold power. Stories instill fear. Stories wage wars. Stories bring peace. Stories give hope. We are the stories we tell. Listening does effect change. This is one of a series of story-based workshops aimed at exploring the stories we tell as a community. Do they hold us back or propel us forward? Do they tear us apart or bring us together? Do they peddle fear or champion hope? If it takes a thousand voices to tell a story, what story are you helping tell with your voice?

This particular workshop explores the stories we tell – or silence – about conflict and peace.
