In 2011, during the Clonmel Junction Festival, myself and fellow artist Nina Tanis got to facilitate a creative café called ‘ StoryHouse’. Over 10 days we offered workshops, performances and story-circles, with special slots for little ones, for elders, for children,and all the while training a group of 6 teenagers to become storytellers and storytelling facilitators. In my career to date, this experience has been one of the most satisfying. It drew on all my skills and allowed me to perform but also to pass on my art form.
