Mary Alice talks with Richard Geer, Artistic Director of Community Performance International (http://www.communityperformanceinternational.org) and the co-author of "StoryBridge: From Alienation to Community Action" (http://www.amazon.com/Story-Bridge-Alienation-Community-Action-ebook/dp/B00A9J24MO) about using storytelling to work with community connection and development. You may also want to Google Bruce Lipton's work on epigenetics. We talked about the following questions:
• How did you first come to the focus of working with community story?
• How do you and the team host people, place and setting, engaging both participants and the final audience so that the story of community can do its work?
• What time is it now for this kind of story work? What do you think the next level or unfolding of this work is?
• What advice would you give people wanting to engage with the stories of their communities — however they define it?
