7 Stories


7 storytellers, 7 real stories

Who hasn’t been held captive by a powerful, funny, or frightening story?  7 STORIES is a night of such storytelling – to build community, empathy, and celebrate our diversity.  

Each 7 STORIES night has a theme and storytellers sign up and are selected in advance. Real stories are spellbinding and raw. They are not a theatrical performance, but true life stories from your friends, acquaintances, or someone you have never met.  These stories are told from the heart. Each program is introduced by our host for the evening, with a short bio of each storyteller.

There will be no 7 STORIES events in November or December.

January 11th, join us for a free storytelling workshop with Paul Currington. Bring a rough idea for the story you might tell for feedback and coaching in a supportive environment.

DATE: January 11th, 2023
TIME: 5:00pm - 7:00pm
LOCATION: Highline Heritage Museum
