Share your Hurricane Harvey stories in a free workshop

Free and open to the public. Registration is required, click here

As Houston marked the one year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey, the Houston Flood Museum website is collecting oral, written, and visual narratives about the storm’s impact on families. We all felt the impact of Hurricane Harvey. Everyone (ages 7 and up)—grandparents, parents, siblings, and children—is invited to participate in a FREE Inprint Intergenerational Workshop to share stories about the storm, about family and about survival. In this dynamic one-afternoon workshop, through collective activities, people of all ages will come together and experience the power of sharing stories.

Please note, no prior storytelling, writing, drawing or coloring experience is necessary. All materials will be provided at the workshop. This workshop is presented in association with the Houston Flood Museum underwritten by Houston Endowment.
