Hear Paula Weiss and Khalafalla Osman – a former participant now applying to law school - discuss this upcoming event on the WAMC program Falling Into Place, recorded 4-6-17.

Since Children at the Well’s 10th anniversary performance Spring 2015, we concentrated our efforts on writing a book to help others launch their own peace-building youth storytelling programs. Our book was written – all 145 pages of it! Then we needed to raise money via Kickstarter to publish, promote and distribute this book.

A million THANK YOUS to all one hundred twenty-three backers who supported our vision of helping others start similar peace-building youth storytelling programs.

The Kickstarter campaign is fully funded and we can go about publishing the C@W Starter Kit!!

2015 was our Tenth Year!! of bringing diverse young people (and their families) together through the art of storytelling in the Capital Region of New York State. On April 26th, we celebrated our anniversary at the C@W performance, which included Indian Classical Dance by students of Narthanalaya School of Arts.

It started out as a photo of the Board after our May 4, 2014 program and potluck supper, but people kept jumping into the photo, not wanting to be left out...and we all kept laughing!
