The 11 presenters are as varied as their topics and perspectives:
– from “Storytelling at Work” by Mitch Ditkoff, author, co-founder and president of Idea Champions, to,
– “MytholoJAZZ,” classic Greek tragedies set to scat jazz by David Gonzalez; and
– local Woodstock resident Gioia Timpanelli, one of the founders of the worldwide revival of storytelling, to,
– noted author and teacher of Native American wisdom, Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, a leading proponent of narrative psychiatry.
The Festival also showcases theatrical performances, myths, fables, and fairytales, and interactive workshops.
“While our remarkable line-up of presenters will be sharing the power and use of story in every field of human endeavor, they also will also be providing a tremendously entertaining event,” says producer and longtime Woodstock resident Peter Blum.
Full two-day festival admission price is $150; single day tickets are $95; meals and lodging are not included. Due to the intimate size of the venue, advanced ticket purchase is encouraged.
