Chinatown Presents: Personal Storytelling for Social Change at Dudley Cafe

  • Dudley Cafe 15 Warren Street Boston, MA, 02119 United States (map)

Humans are storytelling creatures. As far as we know, we are the only species on the planet to tell and transfer information through story. We make meaning of and understand the world through stories. But sadly, some stories improve the worlds we live in and others destroy them.

As work for justice intensifies amid rising global populism, learning to wield our personal stories to support the change we want to see in our communities at all scales (local, regional, national, global) grows more important by the minute.

Pao Arts Center, PRX Podcast Garage and Dudley Café join together to present two nights of storytelling across neighborhoods by everyday community members.

Twelve participants will participate in a four-week workshop to learn about storytelling skills and share their personal stories!

These stories will be shared at Pao Arts Center on October 25th and Dudley Café on November 8th. We hope you can join us at both locations to support our community storytellers!
