The 20th Annual Multicultural Storytelling Festival in Eugene will take place May 5 - 8th, 2010. The "Multi-Cultural Storytelling Festival & Concert" brings cultural awareness and appreciation to our community, especially to our children. During this festival, nationally-known tellers from three different cultures visit some 7,000 students in 27 schools. The tellers also present workshops, library storytelling, and an evening concert for the community. During the past ninteen years, 60 storytellers have visited over 135,000 students in the schools. The tellers this year will be:

  • DIANE FERLATTE, an African American storyteller, who has performed across the United States as well as overseas
  • CHARLIE CHIN, a teller of many talents: musician, author, playwright, folklorist, Tai Chi Chuan Instructor, and classically trained storyteller working with the Chinese Historical Society of America in San Francisco
  • ANTONIO ROCHA, a wonderfully talented, Brazilian mime artist and storyteller.

No Name-Calling Week (NNCW) 2010 will take place January 25th-29th. This year NNCW will also have a new high school component to NNCW. Although originally designed for use in middle schools, NNCW has always been observed throughout all grade levels. The Creative Expression Contest, which focuses on anti-LGBT name-calling and bullying in school will be open to all grade levels.
