Call for Participants: The Moth Storytelling Workshop on Caregiving at CUNY Application Form
Application Deadline: Monday, January 28, 2019, 11:59pm.

The Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY in collaboration with The Moth College Program, is pleased to announce a storytelling workshop for CUNY students or alumni who are family or paid caregivers for the elderly, ill, or disabled and who are looking to tell their stories of juggling work, family, school, and caregiving obligations. This workshop is organized by Kathlene McDonald as part of “The Labor of Care Archive: Caregiver Narratives from CUNY and its Communities” Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research.

During this one-day workshop, participants will learn principles of Moth storytelling, brainstorm stories of their own, and share those stories with one another. They will learn the secrets of great storytelling, find the story they want to tell, and connect with peers. At the end of the workshop, participants will celebrate with a StorySLAM—a chance to share the stories they have been working on with peers, friends, and The Moth fans.

Workshop Details: February 9, 2019, 10:00 AM—3:30PM, with StorySLAM from 4:00—5:30PM

Location: The City College Center for Worker Education, CUNY: 25 Broadway, 7th floor

Workshop cap: 15 participants

Eligibility: CUNY students or alumni who are family or paid caregivers for the elderly, ill, or disabled and who are looking to write about the care relationship, the labor involved, and/or its impact on their life, school, work, and other care responsibilities.

Application Deadline: Monday, January 28, 2019.
