Restorative Stories Free Developmental Workshop

rserrell Uncategorized

In the midst of great social change, we have decided to enhance our Restorative Stories project.  We are replacing the September 25th Restorative Stories presentation with a 12-week story workshop.  This free workshop will be for six underrepresented minority artists, and will culminate in a public sharing next Spring.  This workshop is geared towards increasing inclusion in the performing arts field. 

If you’re interested in participating, please fill out this form and submit a 3 to 6 minute short story on video as a representation of your work. Participants will be selected by K. Lorrel Manning (award-winning director), Poorna Jagganathan (award-winning actress), Seth Barrish (TBG co-Artistic Director), and Lee Brock (TBG co-Artistic Director).

Submission deadline: October 16, 2020

Storytelling Tips

For more storytelling tips, consider taking our Storytelling Workshop with Seth Barrish.


Does the story need to be about living during the time of COVID-19? No. It certainly can be but it can be from any time and does not need to reference the current state of the world.

Does the video/story need to be new material? Not necessarily. If you have a clip of something your previously created that you feel fits the prompt, definitely submit it. Just make sure it is your clip to share.

Does the story need to have dialogue? Not necessarily. We encourage creativity!

Can I submit multiple stories? Of course! We will only be able to share out a select few but we welcome you to submit whatever restorative stories you have.
