International Art of Storytelling – Brazil 2006
In March 2006, the Miami-Dade Public Library System sent a delegation of librarians to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to explore its culture and to share stories. In May, a similar delegation from Rio visited Miami-Dade and spent four days experiencing the diverse culture and learned about South Florida’s history. The group visited library branches, where they discussed ideas and shared storytelling techniques. The Brazilian representatives also attended a two-day workshop conducted by award-winning author, illustrator and storyteller Ashley Bryan and Brazilian storyteller Antonio Rocha. The group also performed at the International Festival.
