Katie Elevitch, artist, educator, and owner/director of 95 1/2 Main has launched her 2018-2019 Women’s Storytelling Project. This project is made possible by a Grant from ArtsWestchester/NYSCA with additional support and sponsorship from 95 1/2 MAIN, The Nerdy Duo Productions, RiverRiver Writer's Circle and Community donations.

Through a series of Storytelling Workshops, Circles, Events and Multi-Media Installations and Exhibits, project director and workshop facilitator Katie Elevitch provides opportunities for women of all ages and backgrounds to learn how oral storytelling in community can empower, heal, and help us all on our journeys to authentic expression.
