Join Us for a Story Slam on the Theme “Together”

Join the Voices from HOME Oral History Project for a live storytelling event on the theme “Together” on Friday, May 22 at 6 pm.

Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

We want to know:

How have you spent time together? Have you worked with your community to make it better? Was there a time when you were feeling totally alone and then, surprise, someone showed up to fill the void? Or vice versa: you were the one who showed up when needed? Did someone or something bring you together with the love of your life? Have you worked to get your life together, alone or with others? Maybe an exciting night with friends is something you still talk about. We want to know what you’ve done together!

The key word here is “together,” and whatever memory or story that conjures up, sharing it with us on story slam night could be entertaining or perhaps inspirational. Come together (but apart on Zoom) to share your 4-8 minute TRUE story, or listen to the stories of others!
