Stories inForm from the Baltimore American Indian Center focuses on contemporary forms of storytelling methods including performance, documentaries, graphic novels and collective publications. Collective publications are often created collaboratively and shared in printed form. For example, a newsletter or a community cookbook are both made by several members of the community to inform the larger public.
