The Butterfly: A Radical Act of Community Storytelling
October 23, 2018 - November 27, 2018Free
Join us, as we radically change minds and hearts at transformative, uncensored adult storytelling concerts.
The Butterfly is a FREE community storytelling concert held the 4th Tuesday of each month at our Collingswood location.
Storytelling is the first art form. From its inception on the continent of Africa, storytelling has been steeped in communal ethos. It is an amalgamated event of teller and audience. It teaches lessons, empowers voice and maintains societal values. It makes us laugh, cry, gasp, hold on and release — It connects.
If you would like to participate as a teller, please Submit to Tell Here.
