StoryShare: David Schulz at the Bainbridge Waterfront Park Community Center April 25

StoryShare featuring David Schulz
Saturday, April 25 @ 9:00 a.m.
at the Waterfront Park Community Center

Enjoy a presentation on cultural mythology and the collective memory in this riveting “summary conversation” to Bainbridge Performing Arts’ community outreach program for SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS. StoryShare features renowned guest speaker David Schulz, who has presented research globally on issues of rhetoric, public memory, and social movements. Schulz is a professor and Chair of Communication at Trinity Lutheran College in Everett, Washington, and his presentation emphasis will be on lessons learned and how we, as a community, move thoughtfully forward from here.

In the course of BPA’s production of SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS, audience members were invited to share how the experience of exclusion relates to their lives by recording their comments on tags very similar to those issued to Japanese Americans during the Japanese American exclusion experience. These completed tags will be on display at the Waterfront Park Community Center during StoryShare and will subsequently be archived at the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum as the “2015 Exclusion Tag Community Project.”

This free community presentation will be held Saturday, April 25 at 9:00 a.m. at the Waterfront Park Community Center, 370 Brien Dr. SE, Bainbridge Island. Additional information is available through the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District at or 206.842.1616.
