Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Spring 2021
By Jeannelle Ramirez
During the Spring 2021 semester, Texas Folklife's Stories from Deep in the Heart program worked with Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired to provide workshops and training on audio storytelling.
Students explored themes of change, overcoming challenges, and building confidence and community. Students produced original stories drawing on their experiences at TSB and beyond to create podcasts that highlighted their unique voices. They learned about engaging with their communities and created stories that spoke directly to their individual experience as students with different abilities.
The audio stories are available for listening on the Texas Folklife SoundCloud.
