  • Grant Summary:

    Partnership funding will allow Connecticut Storytelling Center (CSC) to expand programming to older students and present programs that focus on the Colonial / Revolutionary War and Civil War periods through storytelling bringing to light many interesting and diverse people and events that are often left out of school curricula. Piloting the program with 6 storytellers, CSC will bring stories that celebrate CT’s history to schools, libraries and historical societies and encourage discussion about our history and how it impacts the present. If the interest is strong, the goal is to grow the program’s reach with additional storytellers with material related to Connecticut history. Partnership period is November 2019 through June 2020.
