Let’s spice things up by going back to the roots – charismatic storytellers getting on a stage and delivering a compelling story to a crowd.
Storytelling is an informal and imaginative medium. It allows us to make every day connections to the people around us. With your story-savvy expertise, SE Uplift will host an inspirational night at the Bagdad Theater, where ‘so-and-so’ (we mean you!) tells humorous and bizarre stories of neighborly interaction. The audience shows up ready to be entertained, they laugh, they cry, maybe they start thinking about their own communities. By the time they walk out of the theater it hits them; “Hmmm, maybe I should get to know my neighbors?”
Civic engagement can be as simple as getting to know your neighbors and
you can help us by telling YOUR story!
Approximately 10 lucky storytellers will share their stories live at the Bagdad Theater on September 17th!!
