FALL 2019 INTERGENERATIONAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS

The Generations Project is recruiting LGBTQ+ people and allies of all ages to join 1 of 3 intergenerational groups who will meet 1 day/night a week for 4 consecutive weeks this Fall 2019!

At this workshop, each person will meet wonderful individuals who will help one another to develop a 5-7 minute story about "A mentor in their lives or a time in their lives when they could have used a mentor." Participants will share their story to a small audience on the last day of the workshop.

REGISTER HERE TO GET MORE INFO

Please note, registering does not officially sign you up but it will ensure we follow up with you to ask a few more questions in our attempt to match you in the best group possible!

These workshop support our effort to build the Stonewall 50 Time Capsule. We will have portable photo printers and volunteers to help our storytellers and audience members print a photo from your phone to add a piece of you to our physical manifestation of the LGBTQ+ Movement. The Stonewall 50 Time Capsule will be sealed for 49 years starting in June 2020 until it is opened at the 100th Anniversary of Stonewall in 2069.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to preserve the history of the LGBTQ+ Movement with cross-generational storytelling!

“In the 1960s in Brooklyn, Barbara was a job developer and we worked hand in hand. I discovered that she was taking other ladies to lunch, everyday. And I said to her, ‘Why is it that you never take me to lunch?’    And she said, ‘Well, you know…I’m gay.’    Then I said, ‘Gay? what does that mean?’    She replied, ‘I. love. Women.'”    -Gerri Pilgrim  at The Mentorship Show in April 2019
