DreamOut March: featuring Rachael Rifkin, founder of Life Stories Today

March 29 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

DreamOut People’s Project will team up with storyteller extraordinaire Rachael Rifkin at Elinor, (attached to and behind MADE by Millworks) in Long Beach, CA!

We will be exploring storytelling as a way to get to know our families better. Families come in all shapes and sizes. This customized workshop will offer storytelling techniques that not only connect each participant to their unique family’s past, but position each individual to become more actively involved in the design of their own future.

Prior to the workshop, think about an object of significance that relates to your family’s history. (BONUS points for anyone one take a photo or has the ability to bring it to the workshop).

This three-hour workshop will explore ideas like:

*How does my family’s past relate to my future?
*The health benefits of family storytelling
*What can my family’s story teach me about my own story and the life I want to create?

Just head to the second floor art gallery of Elinor (attached to and behind MADE). Please note, there is no elevator.
