Storytelling Workshop in Tuguegarao, Cagayan

Right after the Adarna House sponsored workshop, I headed on to the terminal of Victory Liner. I was scheduled to be in Tuguegarao on March 13 - 14 for a two-day storytelling workshop with teachers, librarians and day care givers of Region 2.

True to form, Victory Liner did not disappoint. I arrived an hour early than the expected time of arrival in Tuguegarao. Despite the crowd in Kamias Terminal, Victory Liner management tried their best to service the great number of passengers this season. At 9.30 AM, the workshop started and the storytelling circle was on fire.

Ms. Gloria, a public school teacher tells a personal story using paper cut-outs.

 For two days, participants looked back to their memories and significant human experiences to allow them the natural and spontaneous way of storytelling; practiced voice modulation; moved their bodies to exercises that would allow them to relax during storytelling sessions; watched different storytelling styles which I demonstrated; prepared flashcards for their storytelling of a local folk story using their mother tongue.

Many thanks to Sowers of Love Human Development Inc. an organization in Tuguegarao that is committed to empower and form responsible and capable Cagayanons, and its young president, Coun. George Vega for making my stay in my father's hometown a memorable one. Sowers of Love is still a start up but the zest of its young members is its strength. This early, I pledge my support to Sowers of Love as they move their way towards their noble goal. Good luck and God bless!
