Workshops are held periodically throughout the year, often as part of day–long multi–events. For example: In April 2006, we had a workshop from Bill Gordh followed by a panel discussion for our Stories Worth Telling event. And a sold–out August 2006 evening with Margaret Read MacDonald featured one of storytelling's most renowned author/collector/tellers for an evening of and about stories and storytelling. Our events generally also include a swap.

Please check out our Swaps page for details on ongoing swaps. And check back with us for upcoming events.

You can always call our voice–mail number (1–212–613–3117) if you have any lingering questions.

And here are the details for one ongoing workshop which may be of interest to you:

Umoja to Imani, beginning Saturday October 3rd

African Folk Heritage Circle, Inc. & The Black LGBT Kwanzaa Community of NYC
Umoja to Imani
The ABC’s of Storytelling in the African Tradition

365 West 28th Street (Apartment 2E), New York City
Saturdays from October 3rd to December 26th, 2015,
each session from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon

Children ages 6 to 12 (which must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian) are invited to participate in this series of storytelling workshops intended as a Rite of Passage. It’s an opportunity for youngsters to learn their African heritage — and to express themselves through spoken word, drums, theatre, painting, song… and so much moire.

Impotant: Both the children and their parents will be asked to commit to the entire series of workshops, beginning on Saturday October 3rd and leading right up to and including Kwanzaa (December 26th).
