Sitka Story Lab has had a wonderful second year. In two years, Story Lab has reached over 500 students through over 300 hours of programming in all seven Sitka schools. We expanded the number of writing and storytelling workshops in schools, fostered a sense of community at our after school program, and published our first collection of Southeast Alaska student writing. For the first time, we reached students in Hoonah, Kake, Wrangell, Haines, and Skagway.
We had a wonderful time travelling through Ketchikan, Juneau, Gustavus, and Sitka last month as part of the 2017 Tidelines Journey featuring artists Nina Elder, Billy Joe Miller, Jimmy Riordan, and Wendy Given.
