The Vashon Loop (Vashon, WA), February 3, 2014

Summary:

Vashon Wilderness Program will host its 7th annual Coyote Tales Storytelling Festival on Saturday, February 1 at the Open Space for Arts and Community on Vashon Island. Starting at 4pm, storytellers Allison Cox, Merna Hecht, Steffon Moody and Gene Tagaban will delight all with an imaginative evening of storytelling; supper and dessert to be served during intermission. The proceeds will support the VASHON WILDERNESS PROGAM mission to provide nature immersion experiences for Puget Sound youth.

“Storytelling is inseparable from human life,” explains Stacey Hinden, executive director of VASHON WILDERNESS PROGRAM. “For generations, we have been telling story – be it around a fire to convey lessons for survival; at the dinner table to relay a funny happening from our day; or snuggling up in the dark night to whisper a bedtime tale of wonder. The Coyote Tales Storytelling Festival will stir the imagination of all who listen, allowing our unconscious to take flight into sensuous realms of magic, myth and hero.”

The headlining storytellers for this year’s program herald from diverse backgrounds yet share the gift of this timeless medium.
