Explore the power of storytelling in this workshop in the galleries aimed to help you create a storyline about your own history. The basis of this program starts with the question laid out by artist Abigail DeVille in her exhibition at The Sculpture Center, “Who are the dream keepers in Cleveland?” Master storyteller and Keeper of Culture, Shelli Reeves, will guide you through developing your personal narrative and creating it within the framework of history, community and place.
Shelli Reeves deftly uses innovative ways to start conversations about social determinants of health, and economic inequities while focusing on community, society, and policy. Shelli is the Founder and CEO of Reframe History which is an organization dedicated to keeping stories alive through archiving the past, recording the present, and advocating for the future. Specifically, she does this by building a virtual African American Museum that is accessible through a Black history app where people can learn and share stories. Shelli also produces short-form documentaries that bring the same standard of public media storytelling to neighborhood stories.
