This Full Circle Storytelling event is held in conjunction with WORLD STORYTELLING DAY.
FREE and OPEN to the public, Full Circle Storytelling events revolve around a prompt and the idea: everyone has a story. Sign up to tell a true story related to the evening’s prompt or just come to enjoy the show! (No experience necessary.) Co-hosted by Wandering Aesthetics, Jilly's Music Room and The Akronist this intimate evening of storytelling will conjure the spirit of community.
Registration is encouraged (especially for storytellers), but not required. To register or for more information, please fill out the form below or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
ABOUT WORLD STORYTELLING DAY:
Started in Sweden, World Storytelling Day is a global celebration of the art of oral storytelling. Each year on or near the March equinox, communities gather together to celebrate storytellers and stories. Participants share with each other, gaining insight, building relationships, and inspiring all who listen.
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.
