WRCO is collaborating with the Silk Road Rising theatre company to produce “West Ridge Stories”. The purpose of the program is to help West Ridge residents tell their own stories in their own words. This project will help neighbors to become better acquainted with each other and to appreciate the beautiful diversity our community enjoys. Through a series of storytelling workshops residents will develop their stories culminating in a four day festival of stories in December. The first storytelling workshops are being offered to 30 teens in conjunction with After School Matters. Please encourage your teens or others you know to sign up for this playwriting intensive program being offered at Mather High School.
