Maiden Voyage

Today was sunny and warm -- April 12th -- central New York.  How nice to begin this blog when weather is acting somewhat spring-like. For me, this is the beginning of the real New Year but in this case there  are no cheering drunks, no count-down, no ribbons or naked babies and only one resolution: I will give this my best shot -- to educate and entertain... and listen to you.  Welcome.

Who We Are

We make art in order not to die from the truth. F. Nietzsche

Ashlar Center for Narrative Arts is an arts driven non-profit educational organization that uses spoken word, writing, and arts processes for expression and healing.

We call it "serving the Personal Story".

Our goal is to build resilience in our story tellers.

And give these stories much needed public exposure across platforms.

We invite you to invite us.
