      SCEP Live Online with Storyteller Alton Chung

      Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program (SCEP), in collaboration with community organizations, is moving its programs online to present local artist performances to diverse audiences via Zoom.

      Japanese and Korean storyteller Alton Takiyama-Chung, grew up with the stories, superstitions, and the magic of the Hawaiian Islands. This gives him a unique perspective when telling cultural tales and personal stories of growing up in Hawaii, stories of WWII Japanese-Americans, Asian folktales, and ancient Hawaiian legends. He was awarded the National Storytelling Network’s (NSN’s) first J.J. Reneaux Emerging Artist Award in 2005.

      Performances include: the Timpanogas Storytelling Festival in Utah, the Cayman Islands Gimme Story Storytelling Festival, Singapore’s Congress of Asian Storytellers, the International Storytelling Festival of Thailand, and the International Storytelling Festival in Hue, Vietnam. He has also been the Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center and a New Voice Teller at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN.
