Workshop – Creating Authentic Historical Stories

Workshop – Creating Authentic Historical Stories

Join us for this one of a kind adventure in historical storytelling.  Spend the afternoon with Jay O’Callahan, one of the preeminent tellers of our time, and the exceptional historical interpreters of Plimoth Plantation.  Jay O’Callahan will lead you in the process of crafting a historical story.  Through a series of exercises and activities, you will learn how to prepare and share a story from the past. You will learn through hands-on activities how the Plantation staff uses primary resources to develop their stories of the past.
