Who hasn’t been captivated by a powerful or funny story? “7 Stories” is an ongoing night of storytelling – to build community, empathy, and celebrate our diversity – with the next one coming up this Friday, July 22, 2022.

Each “7 Stories” night is based on a theme, and storytellers sign up and are selected in advance.

This month’s theme is “Coming to/Adjusting to America/United States.”

These free events run from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Highline Heritage Museum (map below), and all are invited to come watch and enjoy the stories in person, or sign up to tell one yourself (please sign up here).

If you’re unable to attend, please note that you can also view this event free online via a livestream video on our Facebook page – be sure to “Like us” here to get notification for when we’re live.

Real stories are mesmerizing and raw. This is not a theatrical performance, but true life stories from your friends, acquaintances, or someone you have never met. Don’t think fables, ghost or children’s stories…these stories are told from the heart. The program will be introduced by our host for the evening, with a short bio of each storyteller.

ORGANIZERS NEED YOU
