A Taste of Storytelling

Artist: Arianna Ross

Type: Residencies


Discover what it takes to perform a story from memory. Students learn specific storytelling techniques that they can use in the future to give a speech, tell a story, or even perform in a play. During this storytelling residency students create the structure for an entire story that they can share with a friend or at a performance venue.

Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
  • Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
