PORTLAND STORY THEATER URBAN TELLERS

Saturday, May 5 @ 8:00pm

Every month, a group of 6 people come together as Urban Tellers® to stand and deliver the real, true stories that they have discovered, crafted, and honed in Portland Story Theater’s Art of Personal Narrative workshops. Told eye to eye, face to face, and heart to heart.

This month’s featured storytellers include:
Daniel LaForce, Janice Archer, Robyn Aoyagi, Chuck McConnell, Katie Skurja, Debz Briske

Hosted by LYNNE DUDDY & LAWRENCE HOWARD

Portland Story Theater builds community, promotes understanding, and fosters radical empathy by giving voice to the real, true stories of ordinary people

WE CAN LISTEN :: NATIVE PERSPECTIVES ON ARTS, CULTURE & JUSTICE

Programmed by the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation and We Can Listen, seven Native American artists share their perspectives through their art.

Anthony Hudson – Multidisciplinary/Performer
Laronn Katchia – Filmmaker
Jacqueline Keeler – Writer

At We Can Listen, we strive to build community, educate, and share the positive impact that truly listening to diverse voices can have on us all. Through a cultural intersection of storytelling, film, music, and personal expression we support individuals and grass roots organizations as they raise their voices on compelling social justice issues Portlanders have demonstrated are important to them. We hope these personal stories will reach audiences they havent reached before, and provide the opportunity, for all who hear them, to increase their understanding of issues that require action and awareness in our greater community.
