Event description

Description

Everyone has a story to tell. What’s your story about “change?” Change can be exciting, or it can cause stress. Maybe you have a story about the last time you changed jobs, or started school, or moved to a new town. Or any other story about change you'd like to talk about.

Join your neighbors and the Storyscope team — local facilitators who are devoted to the time-honored art of storytelling — to share your unique story and get to know more about others by bearing witness to their stories.

Story Circles bring people together to explore a common theme in a spirit of equity and belonging. As each person takes a turn sharing a personal story of three minutes or so, a larger, richer, more complex story emerges. Things we have in common and real differences can be brought to light.

A story circle is a kaleidoscope of human experience: the colors and shapes we each contribute are intertwined; what’s reflected back to us is illuminating and ever-changing, with multiple dimensions, twists and turns.

The event begins with welcoming remarks and an interpretation of the theme by a performing artist. Next, the group breaks into small story circles, each with a facilitator that guides the flow. Then everyone reconvenes as one group for reflection and a poetic or musical epilogue.

For more information, visit storyscopeproject.com. You’ll receive story prompts and storytelling tips.

The Empty Space Theatre is in the ASU Performing and Media Arts Building at the corner of Rural Rd and E University Dr. (By Buffalo Wild Wings) in Tempe.
