Storytelling to Motivate Action
Kirsten Farrell from the Goodman Center leads us in key ways to tell our story in order to motivate action and create change. Register today for the April 24th event!
Kirsten Farrell is a lifelong storyteller, performer and improviser. Upon moving to Los Angeles, she quickly found success in acting in commercials and went on to become a series regular on “10 Items or Less” on TBS. She has studied improvisation, or ‘writing on your feet,’ at the Groundlings Theatre and Upright Citizens Brigade. She currently improvises full-length plays in the style of classic writers like Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Tennessee Williams with Impro Theatre.
At The Goodman Center, Kirsten co-facilitates workshops on storytelling, presentation design, and strategic communications. She is a coach with CSH’s Speak Up! Program, where she trains people with lived experience of homelessness to tell their stories and advocate for permanent supportive housing. In her spare time, she plays the piano, is a visual artist and reads all the books she can get her hands on.
If you plan on participating in Sunday, April 24th’s training, here is a pre-workshop assignment to fill out. You can download the assignment and then once you have completed, please email to Kirsten Farrell at [email protected] by Thursday, April 22nd.
Not able to email it back or signed-up for the training after the assignment was due? No problem! You can still participate in the training. The assignment helps Kirsten determine who to call-on during the training. You are still able to fully participate and ask questions.
This training is being offered for a suggested donation starting at $1.00 & it will help us cover the costs of hiring skilled professionals & then go toward the #MillionsMissing fundraiser (coming soon!). Here is a Google form for those who need a free training.
