View our most recent broadcast, a Special World Mother Pride Event
On June 28th, 2020, The World Mother Storytelling Project presented a unique celebration of Pride and the LGBTQ community with stories of mothers and their children in partnership with the Town Hall of New York City.
The stories will take you on a journey across the world, including Mexico and Iran. You will hear from:
- Transgender woman, Pooya Mohseni, and her mother
- Artist Luis Enrique Garcia from Oaxaca and his mother
- Archival footage of AIDS activists from the 1990s telling stories about their mothers
- LIVE guests, a family consisting of two moms Enid and Doris Karpeh-Diaz and
their adult kids Gabriel Suarez and Jessica Suarez
Watch the first annual World Mother Live from The Town Hall
This past Mother's Day, May 10th, World Mother held our first Digital Event. This enlightening experience was led by Murray Nossel, founder and director of World Mother Storytelling Project and co-creator of the Narativ listening and storytelling method. He has taught storytelling for 25 years in more than 50 countries to more than 10,000 people.
Over the course of this 2-hour event viewers learned how to listen without judgment, opinion or preconception; how to interview their mothers to gather their stories using Narativ’s unique methodology; and how to take the raw material collected to create a compelling story. Even if your mother is no longer in this world, you can learn to tell her story from reconstructed memories that live on.
The song used in our introductory montage is called "Memeke," and was provided by
South African artist Majola Ganyemede.
