Full Circle Storytelling: An Open Mic for Community Storytellers (Theme: The Jaws of Defeat)

  • Kenmore Branch Library 969 Kenmore Boulevard Akron, OH, 44314 United States (map)

This Full Circle Storytelling event is FREE.

Open to the public, Full Circle Storytelling events revolve around a theme and the idea: everyone has a story. Sign up to tell a true story related to the evening’s theme or just come to enjoy the show! (No experience necessary.) Co-hosted by ASCPL, Wandering Aesthetics and the Akronist, this intimate evening of storytelling will conjure the spirit of community.

Since this event is open to the whole community, language and content of stories should be no stronger than PG-13. (Don’t tell us anything your Mama wouldn’t want to hear.)  Stories can range anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes in length.

We are creating a video and audio archive of stories from residents of the Greater Akron area. This archive may be used by students, journalists, researchers, artists, etc. for purposes beyond Full Circle Storytelling events. Participants at our live events are not required to have their stories recorded for our archive. Sometimes the magic is only for those in the room.

Registration is encouraged (especially for storytellers), but not required. To register or for more information, please email benjamin@akronist.com or visit www.watheatre.com/FullCircle.

Theme: The Jaws of Defeat

MISSION STATEMENT:

Open to the public, Full Circle Storytelling events revolve around a theme and the idea: everyone has a story. By encouraging community members to tell their own true tales, each storyteller is placed at the center of his or her own life journey. We use narrative as a way to promote understanding between diverse peoples, building bridges – not walls – within our community.
