In the grand Milwaukee tradition, we’re headed up north this summer…for our residency at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center as part of their “Connecting Communities” programming.
We’re holding storytelling workshops and connecting with community groups including The Salvation Army, the carpenters’ union, the senior center, several high schools, plus a bunch of folks off the street. And of course there’ll be story slams! The next one is Saturday, May 26th, 8 p.m. at Paradigm Coffee and Music in downtown Sheboygan. The theme will be “Oops!”
We’re very honored and excited to have this incredible opportunity with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (JMKAC). Ex Fabula founder Megan McGee and residency director had the following to share
“The JMKAC does a fabulous job of involving the community in their programming, and they’ve build strong relationships with many different community groups, so it’s been wonderful to work alongside their staff and learn from them. Previous artists in residence have included components of storytelling in their visual art and performances, so there’s already a lot of storytelling interest for us to build on. Ex Fabula gets to bring our brand of storytelling to new audiences while fine tuning and fleshing out our workshop curriculum. We also get to build on the success of the Terminal Milwaukee finale as we create another unique event that combines storytelling with music; look for that event in mid-October. All in all, this residency has been challenging, rewarding, and a great adventure so far, and I hope that the Milwaukee community will consider checking it out!”
We’ll keep you posted on upcoming Kohler events in case you need your Ex Fabula fix before our fourth season starts next fall. And of course we’ll be back in Milwaukee soon for a little thing that we like to call Ex Fabula ALL STARS.
We’ll see you soon!
