We are a diverse community of storytellers and community builders presenting a second annual "Celebration of Tales" in Charlottesville. Help us build a stronger, deeper and more inclusive community by joining our celebration. We will feature a truly diverse array of storytellers uniting us through the power of story.

Gathering with Tab Enoch

Upstairs Learning Center A- Story Swap
If you would like to put your name in the hat to tell a 5-minute story, see the folks at VASA (Virginia Storytelling Alliance) at the sales table in the back of the Auditorium. An experienced MC will randomly pull names from the hat, offering as many a chance to tell their story as we have time available. The MC will facilitate constructive feedback from the group that will help you improve your storytelling skills.
Workshop 3 - "Discover the Stories of our History through the Songs of our Culture!" Upstairs Learning Center B with Chris Bohl
Food for Body, Mind, and Spirit. As new work is being presented on stage to feed our collective minds and spirits, please also feed your body with either the box lunch you pre-ordered from Greenberry’s or with food you brought with you.
