Event description

Description

Rain or shine. Weather permitting, we’ll be sitting around the campfire.

Tickets $12/online in advance or $15 on site day of event.

Join us around the Farrington campfire as experienced, competitive storytellers, in a "Moth-like" format, share their 5-6 minute true tales on the evening's theme, "Rooted."

The theme will mean different things to different tellers, but clearly, it is appropriate for both the time of year and the work of Farrington. With each visit youth, we help provide deep connection with nature and personal growth for the children from low-income urban communities who visit Farrington Nature Linc- rooting them in green spaces.

Storytelling is a powerful tradition, conveying experiences, emotions, and knowledge across cultures. Fugitive Stories, Farrington’s partner for this event, brings “true stories told live” regularly to three suburban communities — Acton, Arlington, and Framingham. Their featured tellers captivate audiences and are some of the best in the region.

This event is tailored for ages 14+ to enjoy an evening of stories by a fire. The storytelling begins at sundown, but you are welcome to arrive earlier (6:30pm) to picnic on the property.

So bring a blanket or your beach chairs (and remember to bring extra layers in case it gets cold as it gets dark) and join us for some great stories under the stars!

Janelle is a writer, performer, story coach, and the owner of High Maintenance, her handy-woman business. She co-produces Harpy, a storytelling show in Somerville that features the voices of women and femmes. When she isn’t doing these things, she’s remodeling her vintage camper, powerlifting, or attempting to casually talk to her two daughters about consent.

Currently, at The Life is Good Kids Foundation (LiGKF), Amanda shares the many stories of the Foundation’s life-changing social work. Amanda has also served as the Director of On-Air Fundraising and Marketing at the WGBH Educational Foundation — managing live and pre-produced fundraisers. When Amanda isn’t steeped in the stories of non-profits, she’s busy crafting and sharing stories of her own. She’s a published short story author, a Moth StorySLAM winner, a gratitude blogger, and the co-founder of Blind Tiger Tellers.
