On Thursday, May 3, the Studium Generale Program will welcome widely-celebrated storyteller Ingrid Nixon at 12:30 p.m. in the Peninsula College Little Theater.
In recent years, Nixon has performed with The Story People of Clallam County to introduce Studium Generale audiences to The Annual Forest Storytelling Festival. The college is thrilled to be featuring her as a solo artist.
“Students are delighted and inspired by her stage presence, her stories, and the way she fills the room with the power of the tale she is telling,” said Studium Coordinator Kate Reavey.
Nixon has performed in Seattle's Northwest Folklife Festival and the Stone Soup Festival in Woodruff, SC. Nixon was a Seattle Moth StorySLAM winner, and she has received acclaim for the numerous films she has written, hosted, and narrated for Discovery Channel and the National Park Service. She founded the “Story Slam” competitions held regularly at Olympic Theatre Arts in Sequim, WA.
Originally from Minnesota, Nixon grew up on the trails of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. Living in Alaska for more than 20 years, she is quite familiar with wilderness. While in Alaska, she worked as a ranger in Denali, directing the interpretive and educational programs there.
Studium Generale is free and open to the public. For more information contact Dr. Kate Reavey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
