All proceeds benefit StoriesLive®, one of the many storytelling programs that massmouth is involved with. In its fourth year, the StoresLive® program has introduced over 5,000 high school students from 15 Massachusetts high school to the art of 21st century storytelling and awarded over $17,000 in scholarship prizes.
As part of the exhibition, Practice, members of massmouth, including the cofounder Norah Dooley, will perform their stories on the show’s theme: art inspired by the practice of craft. After the story slam, massmouth will provide a fun and friendly how-to session on the art and craft of the story. The floor will be open to the audience to try their hand at one of their own.
This is not a competitive event but an opportunity to see some amazing local talent, experience great entertainment, learn about the craft and try it out for yourself. There will be food and drink and all who share their story will receive a to fun gift for their efforts too.
Norah Dooley is an accomplished storyteller, author and educator. She has been presenting workshops and stories for people of all ages throughout New England and also in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Phoenix.
massmouth is a nonprofit organization that promotes the timeless art of storytelling through social media, education and live performance. They conduct story slams throughout the Massachusetts community with competitions that culminate in a semi-final awards event in the spring.
