Our City, Our Story: Live is an event that mixes both episode showcase with live storytelling. This creates an opportunity for people to be introduced to the series, to see new episodes they may not have seen, to interact with the subjects of the stories shown, and record more stories for the series.
OPEN CALL FOR STORYTELLERS! The theme is "Happiness." Tell a story about unexpected joy from a painful experience. Maybe you can tell us about how a happy perspective thwarted a harsh reality — was it a mask or did it truly deflect? Or just tell us about your bliss. Email PabloKorona@OurCityOurStory.com to sign up or for more information.
This event is FREE due to generous support from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois and the RAAC Rockford Area Arts Council.
