story booth, our after-school youth arts program, is dedicated to helping students in Memphis (aged 10-18) cultivate their creative and expository writing and other art-making skills. One-on-one collaboration with trained volunteers helps our young participants develop their creative projects into finished works to be presented via publication, performance, or exhibition.
story booth is located at 438 N. Cleveland, adjacent to the Cleveland Street Flea Market.
All of these art-making workshops are free, led by experienced, creative people of all kinds: writers, visual artists, teachers, filmmakers, musicians—you get the idea. We believe students write and create with enthusiasm and increasing confidence when the process leads to a final product, so each of our programs is specifically designed to result in a finished work showcased in the most professional format possible and celebrated before receptive audiences.
