Event description


Everyone has a story to tell. What’s your story about “home”? Join your neighbors and the Storyscope team – local facilitators 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.

***See upcoming Storyscope Story Circles below ***

Story circles bring people together to explore a common theme in a spirit of equity and belonging. As each person takes a turn – sharing his or her unique lived experience and perspective – 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. Facilitators guide the flow from one person to another, each sharing a personal story of three minutes or so. Then the entire group reconvenes for reflection and a poetic or musical epilogue.

After registering for the event of your choice, you’ll receive story prompts and storytelling tips. No storytelling experience necessary.
