Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room


How do we use storytelling to create real world change? How do we find our voices and get our message out? How does the sharing of stories help build community? How do we use storytelling to touch, inspire, persuade, and provoke readers to action?

Join our panel featuring author and interdisciplinary artist Frances Kai-Hwa Wang of PBS News Hour, documentary producer Zosette Guir of Detroit Public Television, Jasmine Rivera, Executive Director of Rising Voices, and interdisciplinary artist Okyoung Noh.

Hosted by Chien-An Yuan, in partnership with AAPI performance collaborative IS/LAND, Detroit Public Television, and Rising Voices. This event is part of a series leading up to the performance of Kizuna Tree on May 20th.
