StoryRise August 31: Stories of the Journey Out There and In Here

August 31, 2012 Noon. Four storytellers and fringe artists take on the theme with traditional folktales and the like. No kids, please. This is for adults.

StoryRise is back on August 31. Join us for our next brown-bag style concert! Download the .pdf flyer here!

Where are you going? Is success the destination or the journey? Who walks with you? Is stumbling really that bad? Three accomplished storytellers and fringe performers take on the real and metaphorical journeys from the perspective of world folktales. This is an event for adult listeners and the urban entrepreneurs who know that “one foot in front of the other” is really the only way to go. Presented for the Gangplank Brown-Bag Series. Bring your lunch if you wish.
