The Butterfly: A Radical Act of Community Storytelling

September 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Storytelling, Performance Poetry and Spoken Word in the Oral Tradition

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 from 7:00-8:30 pm.

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 by the 1st Tuesday of the Month.

Call for Featured tellers for the Following Themes:

2019 Schedule:

March 26: Herstory
April 23: Love Me, Love Me Not
May 28: Lessons from the Little Ones
June 25: Inspired Curiosity
July 23: First Time
September 24: Scars
October 22: Mountains and Valleys
November 26: The Holidays

Be encouraged to indulge your creativity around the theme.
