Clowns Without Borders South Africa (www.cwbsa.org) presents OUR STORY YOUR STORY – an intergenerational project connecting elders and youth through autobiographical storytelling. Storytelling has immense power to build connections between individuals, between generations, and between the past and the future. OUR STORY YOUR STORY engages participants in an interactive storytelling workshop process. Seniors and youth are guided to identify personal narratives from their lives, craft them into stories, and share them with each other. It provides healing from trauma, safe activities for at-risk youth, and a sense of common humanity.
