Grants and Our Thanks

It is with gratitude and thanks that we

recognize and applaud the support from our

Great Community!

Western Maine Storytelling has received grants from the Maine Humanities Council and the Tri-Valley United Way to advance storytelling in four communities: Livermore Falls, Wilton, Farmington, and Rangeley.

A storytelling workshop is offered in each community — helping participants mine their own family stories — followed by a second session where seasoned storytellers and those from the workshop share personal and family stories.

The goal is to encourage face-to-face communication  through stories; the fear being we are so engaged in our computer and smart-phone screens that we are losing the art of communication.

Our motto is:The shortest distance between two people is a story.”
