BRIDGING DIFFERENCES THROUGH STORYTELLING


Internationally acclaimed storyteller and author, Noa Baum, shares her experiences of using storytelling as a tool for dialogue and peace building.   Stories are a powerful window to our identity and help us see beyond labels, preconceptions and fears.  

Noa will share insights about her memoir which recounts her journey from girlhood in post-Holocaust Israel to her adult encounter with "the other".  She uses honesty, compassion and humor as she captures the drama of a nation at war and her discovery of humanity in the enemy.  In this dynamic session, Noa demonstrates the transformative power of listening to the other and challenges us to take the first step toward building bridges of inclusion and peace on our communities and workplaces.  

 

 
Israeli Storyteller and author Noa Baum  grew up in Jerusalem where her perceptions and identify were shaped by ancestral trauma and fear of annihilation in war.  In her award-winning book, A Land Twice Promised, she shares her experience of using storytelling as a tool for dialogue and peace building.    
She is the winner of Anne Izard Storytellers' Choice Award, Storytelling World Award, and LDS Publishing Professional Association Award.
