Narrative Practice: Eliciting Story 

Liz LermanWednesday, May 18, 2011

SMC Campus Center, Room 349

9:00 am - 3:30 pm


Registration is required.


The Event is FREE to all UMB students, faculty and staff.  


Sponsored by the CCLC, PAACAA and the Wellness Hub. 


Why do stories matter? How can we artfully elicit them? How do we honor their intimacy while maintaining professionalism?


Join the artists of the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange for a day-long workshop designed for professionals that need or want to gather stories--and insight--from their clients in the course of their work. Through the lens of art and movement, you will learn techniques for skillfully and respectfully eliciting stories, reading non-verbal cues, and unearthing multiple meanings for both listener and teller.  


Founded in 1976, Dance Exchange offers a unique brand of dance/theatre that breaks boundaries between stage and audience, theater and community, movement and language, tradition and the unexplored. 

Spring 2011 Graduate Diplomas  


Diplomas for spring graduates will be distributed at the Commencement ceremony at the Baltimore Arena, Friday May 20th. If you do not attend the ceremony, your diploma will be available for pick-up beginning at noon, Monday, May 23rd, in the Office of the Registrar. The office is located in the HS/HSL, suite 240. Diploma pick up in the office is by the graduate only and requires a picture ID. Diplomas will be available for pick-up until 4:30 Friday, May 27th. All diplomas not distributed at the ceremony or during the following week will be mailed to graduates beginning Tuesday, May 31st.
