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 Facebook and Zoom.   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.

Call for featured tellers for the following themes:
