Students,  faculty and staff are invited to pre-register as soon as possible for the Anne Frank Project's interactive, experiential story-building workshop and performance, starting at noon Wednesday, Sept. 12, in Hewitt ballroom.

The experience is aimed at using storytelling as a vehicle for "improving the world one story at a time" through community building, conflict resolution and identity exploration. Inspired by the wisdom of Anne Frank, the project surfaces and shares stories stifled by oppression.  

Drew Kahn, theater professor and founder of the Anne Frank Project, will come to SUNY Oswego on Wednesday from Buffalo State, along with four Anne Frank Project alumni. They will guide up to 60 students, faculty and staff through an experience in storytelling with the theme of "Resiliency," chosen to complement the Mental Health and Wellness Fair, running from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The community is invited to attend the workshop's creation, with a performance to take place at 3 p.m. Wednesday in Marano Campus Center auditorium at a class meeting of the project host, the Living Writers Series.

Kahn and the Anne Frank Project will make follow-up resources and correspondence available for those in disciplines and departments that wish to expand on storytelling projects and the project's mission.

Pre-registration is available now.
