story booth afternoon workshops
story booth is a space dedicated to helping young people in Memphis (aged 10-18) develop their own voices through creative and expository writing and other project-based art workshops. these workshops are free for participants.
these collaborations with professional artists and trained volunteers helps our participants see projects from inspiration to finished works and public recognition. we believe young people write and create with enthusiasm and increasing confidence when they see the steps of a particular artistic process lead to a final product, so each of our workshops is specifically designed to result in a finished work showcased in the most professional format possible—then published, performed, screened, or exhibited before a receptive audience.
