Walk the cobbled spine of the Great Wall, explore the courtyards of the Forbidden City, peruse the gardens of the Summer Palace or Temple of Heaven and view the Hanging Temples, and Yungang Grottoes of Datong.
Storytelling Swaps in China
But the most exciting experience will be visiting the storytelling village of Gengcun. There, a plethora of tales and myths will await you in amidst a tradition so grand, that researchers have deemed this rural farm community “An Ocean of Stories.” Join us as we share, swap, and exchange our stories with over 100 mid-level to master tellers, some of whom know upwards of 500 stories! Share with the people of China the of who we are, not just as Americans, but as Global Citizens who love storytelling. New for 2013: we will participate in the Gengcun Temple Festival on the Storytelling Stage.
This delegation is hosted by the Nu Wa Team: Nancy Wang and Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec (San Francisco), Linda Fang (Washington, D.C.), and Doug Banner (Bellingham, Washington). China Journey 2013 will be the fourth delegation lead by Eth-Noh-Tec (previous delegations: 2002, 2006, 2007, 2010).
