Co-hosted by Wandering Aesthetics, Jilly's Music Room and The Akronist this intimate evening of storytelling will conjure the spirit of community.

Full Circle is an open mic for storytellers. Telling their own true tales, Akronites are placed at the center of their own life journeys. Based on the work of Joseph Campbell, we use narrative to ignite understanding between diverse peoples, building bridges– not walls– within our community.


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.


While not required, registration prior to the event is encouraged. Register below:
