NU WA WELCOMES YOU to
… the Storytelling Delegations to China (Oct 8-16) & Korea (Oct 16-25)
Who is Nu Wa? Why is our storytelling journey named after her? Nu Wa is the Chinese Diety who created human beings from a common ground ( yes, mud folks!!) she’s also the Goddess who saved human beings from the destruction of gods at war, Fire and Water. She rises again as the diety guides our inspiration in a month long act of cultural diplomacy between peoples of America, China and Korea through the Art of Storytelling!

The Nu Wa Core Team: Nancy and I, Xiani (our daughter) and Pati Fuentes (longstanding family friend) plus visiting apprentice Ling Lee, set out in advance several days before the dozens of other storytelling delegate have arrived. Of course, besides making final preparations we have time to explore Beijing with a little more freedom, fun at the incredible Beijing 798 Arts District and plenty of tasty street food! Eventually, one by one our delegates arrived, travel weary and hungry… but still with enough energy for our first introductory meeting on the third floor lobby and the long awaited Peking Duck meal at Quanjude Restaurant!
… ANOTHER STORYTELLING ADVENTURE: Following the 8-9 day Chinese storytelling adventure, we will travel to Korea to explore storytelling and story-based performing arts of this northern land. Meet with storytellers, hear their traditions, and engage in community activities in schools, community centers and cultural institutions. Experience the FIRST International Korean Storytelling Festival in Seoul followed be trip to Chuncheon where you will experience a storytelling village and island.
