Storytelling with The Hub…take 2?

January 6, 2010

Well here’s to hoping! I excitedly announced the Hub would be venturing into the realm of urban storytelling this past December and what happened? The tundra came to visit! As much as I love a good snow, I’m hoping the weather holds this weekend so that we can commence with our Community Voices workshop taking place on the 9th 2-6pm at The Soundry. Register here or just walk-in. The cost of the class is $20. There will not be any live storytelling post workshop this time.

In a previous post I wrote a bit about the growing awareness of storytelling as a wonderfully multifaceted entertainment medium. I mentioned great organizations like The Moth and Speakeasy DC. Here’s another one for you– I can’t believe I forgot to include this one before: StoryCorps. Their mission is “…to honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening.”  StoryCorps is amazing; they’ve created the opportunity for thousands of people to record and preserve their stories. I encourage you to check out their website and find one of their locations. You get to take a recording of your story home with you and it’s also archived in the Library of Congress. You can listen online here.

See you this Saturday!
