Event description

Description

Tell your story! Personal storytelling can connect you to your audience and your classmates, and give you a chance to reflect on life. But how do we create the conditions for great storytelling? Leaders of The Moth's Education Program will lead a lively, on-our-feet workshop to brainstorm and craft your own Moth stories and listen to your classmates share about their own lives, too. We’ll end by reflecting on ways that Moth stories can serve you in leadership contexts from job interviews to proposals to building your personal mission.

Instructors:

Hanna Campbell, MS, has been working in educational and college spaces for the past ten years. In that time, she’s co-founded two middle schools, designed a training program for future school leaders and worked on teacher preparation and school design initiatives for the City University of New York and the State University of New York. In addition to her BA in English from Amherst College, Hanna holds an MS in Nonprofit Management from The New School.

In January 2016, Hanna took a Moth Corporate workshop. Excited and inspired, she applied to be a teaching artist with the EDU team, and has been instructing ever since. Hanna’s work at The Moth spans high school, college and teacher programs; she currently facilitates in the Community Program as well as coordinates The Moth’s Higher Education Programs.

Catherine McCarthy is the Manager of The Moth Education Program, where she has helped hundreds of high school students and teachers share their personal stories in workshops and onstage. She has facilitated storytelling workshops for the US State Department, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, The DreamYard Project, SXSWEDU, and more. She is currently pursuing a Master’s of Social Work at Fordham University.


Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

Through ongoing programs in more than 25 cities, The Moth has presented over 18,000 stories to standing-room-only crowds worldwide and it currently produces more than 500 live shows each year. The Moth podcast is downloaded over 30 million times a year, and each week, the Peabody Award-winning Moth Radio Hour is heard on over 400 radio stations worldwide. The Moth’s first book, The Moth: 50 True Stories was a NYT Bestseller and its newest book, All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown was released March, 2017.
