Recognizing the power and potential of storytelling in its many forms at this pivotal moment in American culture and politics, this 5-day festival draws on the skills of some of the nation’s most prominent and diverse storytelling practitioners. The Festival will feature both traditional and contemporary stories from nationally and locally known storytellers. The programming will focus on diverse voices, all addressing these ideas: How can storytelling illuminate the world as it exists now? Can storytelling build community and create cultural and institutional change? What can a community do to invite a diversity of voices to share personal and cultural stories that have shaped the way they live and the way we understand others? Can storytelling be an effective platform to battle systemic racism?
The international, national and local list of storyteller are an exciting collection of artists who are currently defining the art form: Andrew Ali Aghapour, Charlotte Blake Alston, Brenda Wong Aoki, Milbre Burch, Jasmin Cardenas, Sam Gates, Jaki Shelton Green, Kaya Littleturtle, Ashley Lumpkin, Senora Lynch, Daniel Reyes, Carlos Robson, Simon Tam, Dovie Thomason and UNC student storytellers.
