‘7 Stories’ will focus on acceptance on June 24 at Highline Heritage Museum

June 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

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 on Friday, June 24, 2022.

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

These free events run from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Highline Heritage Museum (map below), and you can either watch and enjoy the stories, 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.

WE NEED YOU Please consider sharing your true story…In the spirit of community and friendship. We will coach/help you as much as you would like.
