The Butterfly: A Radical Act of Community Storytelling
September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
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 on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM, currently being held LIVE on Zoom and Facebook. 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 here by the 1st Tuesday of the month.
Be encouraged to indulge your creativity around the theme.
