Spellbinders® is dedicated to restoring the art of oral storytelling to connect elders to youth, weaving together the wisdom of diverse cultures throughout time.
Since ancient times storytellers have told stories to pass on wisdom, engage the imagination and foster community. Our storytelling program recreates this age-old tradition, bringing together young and old to create connections, advance literacy and enrich the lives of children and volunteers alike. Please, join us in our vision of fostering humanity, community and literacy.
This information is for the people in the community of Edgewater who might be interested in becoming storytellers at Jefferson County Elementary Schools. It would be great to have people who are bi-lingual, in English and Spanish. The training is in three parts: March 3, 6, and 10 from 10:00 to 1:00. The location is at Jefferson Unitarian Church (Spellbinders is not affiliated with the church, just using their building). Usually, the training costs $50.00, but “West Side! Live” has donated monies to Spellbinders, so this training is FREE. If you are interested, contact Betty Lynn Ferguson, email@example.com or call 303-274-6310 for more information.
