Storymaking at Walker Open Field

Storymaking
at Walker Open Field
with Twin Cities Runoff
Saturday, July 2, 2011, 3:30-5:00 p.m.

In 1776 our Forefathers toiled in Philadelphia to guarantee our right to tell whatever stories we want to to whatever audiences wanted to listen . . . okay, maybe those freedoms came later, with the Constitution, First Amendment, but at Twin Cities Runoff we know Storymaking is a huge component of the Pursuit of Happiness. So we invite you to celebrate your freedoms: begin your Fourth of July weekend telling stories with Twin Cities Runoff at Walker Open Field!

We’ll be playing classic storytelling and creative games like
Exquisite Corpse
TCR-libs: Fill in the Blanks on Local Media Culture (the generalized, trademarked version)
Sentence Drawing Sentence
The Game of 1000 Blank White Cards

After spending your day inside the museum (it’s a Free First Saturday!) with John Waters and Nan Goldin or outside with ol’ Cherry Spoon ’n’ Glass Fish, we know you’ll be plenty inspired to combine your own disparate elements to make something weird and wonderful and completely new. And we’ll have activities for kids, too—so bring your family, and learn a little bit more about Twin Cities Runoff while collaborating on completely new stories with others.

That movie premise that’s been hounding you for weeks? The weird bits of the dream you had last night? The setting and characters that are just searching for their story? Bundle it all up and drop it at Storymaking! Maybe you’ll find your inspiration to do something with it.

Deborah Carver is the editor and publisher of Twin Cities Runoff.
