You’re Invited: Story Circle Event
February 3, 2016, 7:15 – 8:45 p.m.
There’s much talk of the things that divide Americans, historically and in recent times. A collaborative, community-based project, Storymakers: Durham, seeks to bring people together to tell stories and to listen.
The project is a collaboration between WUNC / North Carolina Public Radio; the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University; SpiritHouse, Inc., a community organization; and the citizens of Durham who choose to participate. After a series of Story Circles across the city this winter, the eventual goal is to invite and train a cross-section of citizen storytellers to record and produce stories for air on WUNC next year. You are invited and encouraged to join the Story Circle whether or not you have an interest in participating further in the project.
The Story Circle is a low-pressure, congenial event. After introductions, we’ll split into small groups and be given a prompt to take turns telling a very brief story from our lives. The prompt will be broad enough to invite stories about serious or not-so-serious matters; that’s up to you. The only qualification for taking part is an interest in listening, and perhaps sharing something from your experience.
