ReGen Storytelling Workshops

The ReGen storytelling workshop project uses the mediums of improvisation and storytelling to foster community, collaboration and interaction between and with older adults and younger adults (e.g. high school and college age).

From January to May 2021, three workshop cohorts of 10-12 total (5/6 younger adults and 5/6 older adults) will come together virtually to engage Detroiters in a series of four 1 hour or 1.5-hour ReGen workshops over a period of 1 to 2 months. Each workshop will begin with improvisational shared storytelling and end with a story product shaped by each participant in the workshop. It is our intent to end the workshops with a meeting of the older and younger participants when it is safe to do so in the future.
