The Moth, the internationally-acclaimed organization dedicated to the art and craft of personal stories told live, is bringing two storytelling workshops to Nairobi, Kenya, in February 2020, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Through its Global Community Program, The Moth conducts workshops with individuals around the world, elevating stories that highlight world issues, dissolve stereotypes, and bridge social divides. Guided by Moth instructors, workshop participants shape selected life experiences into well-crafted stories, which may then be presented to peers and to the world at large.

These workshops will be offered free of charge, and will be made available to a total of 24 people (12 per workshop). Accommodation, travel, and meals will be provided for all workshop participants. The schedule will be as follows:

Workshop #1:

Monday, February 3rd, 9 AM - 5 PM
Tuesday, February 4th, 9 AM - 5 PM
Wednesday, February 5th, 9 AM - 4 PM
Workshop #2:

Saturday, February 8th, 9 AM - 5 PM
Sunday, February 9th, 9 AM - 5 PM
Monday, February 10th, 9 AM - 4 PM
Participants will arrive in Nairobi on the evening preceding the first day of the workshop, and will depart in the evening of the workshop's final day, or on the following day.

If you participate, you will:

be introduced to principles of personal narrative, developed by The Moth through its work with thousands of storytellers since its launch in 1997;
identify one personal story; and
receive one-on-one coaching to help craft your five-minute story.
Who should apply for this workshop: individuals who identify as people who help develop vaccines, help distribute or set up systems to deliver vaccines, people who have benefitted themselves from vaccines, or people who have family members or loved ones who have benefitted from vaccines. In addition, we strongly encourage advocates working in the areas of immunization to apply, but anyone is welcome to share a story about his/her work towards a world where we no longer fear infectious diseases.

Application Deadline: Applications will be accepted through Friday, November 8th, 6:00 PM EST and participants will be notified soon after that. If you have any questions, please contact us at globalcommunity@themoth.org.
