Storywurx is a story-based education, innovation and inspiration company.

We believe that to truly educate, heal and empower the whole child we must also educate, heal and empower the adults who nurture them. YOUTH:  Stoywurx specializes in social justice, digital media, anti-racist and SEL empowered student curriculum, residencies, OST/After School Programs and workshops for grades 2-12. Storywurx’s company mantra is “our youth will save the world” and we see ourselves as toolmakers for this extremely important mission. ADULTS:  We, with our partner Narineh Gharashor of WholisticEDU,  offer a variety of healing centered professional development programs, retreats and PLC's all tailored to the needs of our school partners. Storywurx believes that we, as members of the global  Human Race, must begin to heal our inner-stories in order to transform our collective outer-story. Storywurx, Stories Heal.
