On May 6th Katherine Borland gave a presentation at the Finnish Literature Society Oral History panel exploring the ways that our initial interviews with community organizers might play a stronger role in guiding our Be the Street performances.  She drew on the life review stories of three of our community partners: John Rush, Ramona Reyes, and Annette Jefferson.

Check out Borland’s publication in Folklore Fellows’ Network entitled Beyond Content Analysis – “Narratives of Belonging in a Changing Neighborhood.”

Check out how the facilitation strategies Artistic Director Moriah Flagler uses with Be the Street ensembles can be applied in settings, such as the college of business to invite more voices into a conversation.
