In a talk and workshop entitled The Art of Listening to the Most Marginalized & How to Take Care in the Process, Marie Cornellier will relate her experiences of being a disabled queer woman and how storytelling affects her and the listener. The group conversation and workshop will address “how we edit our stories, how we offer details our listener may not be equipped to digest, how these unprocessed parts of who we are can turn against us, once shared,” and how the storyteller and listener can engage in a caring way.
