The Butterfly is a FREE community storytelling concert held on the 4th Tuesday of each month at our Collingswood location from 7:00 PM – 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.
