Community Programs

Jasmine Powell co-facilitates two distinct community storytelling programs with her husband, Lachlan Plain:

1) to celebrate children as authors and illustrators and to foster their love of literacy, and;

2) to honour the powerful stories of adults from diverse communities.

In their storytelling program with children, Jasmine and Lachlan play with activities that are fun and engaging to harness children’s imaginations.

In their storytelling program with adults, Jasmine and Lachlan provide a safe and nurturing environment and draw upon their shared experience of Jasmine’s journey from catatonia to creative empowerment to powerfully engage project participants.
