Peoples State of the Union Story Circle

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

In collaboration with U.S. Department of Art and Culture, we invite you to a story circle that will combine with others across the nation to present a People's State of the Union address. A story circle is a simple gathering that invites community members to share personal experience, building group wisdom on a particular topic - in this case, the state of our union. Story circles are based in a practice of deep listening and authentic spontaneous sharing. Each participant gets equal time to share a personal story or two, riffing off a common theme or series of prompts.
