Tell Me a Fish Story! Hosted by Ms. Tahiti Robinson
Tell Me a Fish Story is a storytelling contest especially for elders 55 years old and older. As a storyteller in the community Ms. Robinson felt this is an opportunity to empower new faces to the arts community. Over the last year she has trained with the Native American Council on Aging (NICOA) to plan such a project as well as develop herself as an artist. In that time she has honed her performance skills, written new materials and developed the incorporation of puppetry in her presentations. She is excited to get to share her work as an artist while highlighting a community that doesn't always get much attention- Her peers (seniors).
Come out and share your Fish Stories!!
