Della created a storytelling, writing and art program in Vancouver. Students were creating and telling many different kinds of stories – Myths, Multidimensions, Fables, Stories with Emotion and Drama, and some with Travel. Travel can be in an imaginary world, time travel or travels to other dimensions. With their imaginations and dreams they creating their own original Hero/Heroines and Imaginary Maps.
