Story Share brings four art forms together to shine a light on the stories that create our community. First, a community member shares a story from their personal family history in the area. A local writer then shares a written piece based on the family’s story and a visual artist shares artwork inspired by the original story. Finally, the story is interpreted by CU Boulder Playback Theatre. This creative way to share stories is powerful in bringing together various segments of the community, helping elucidate commonalities and build bridges between local factions. If we too often believe we have little in common, Story Share illuminates how so many of us share similar stories or can relate to the stories of others, illustrating that a community needs all kinds of people to thrive and grow.

I think true success is intrinsic…
It’s love. It’s kindness. It’s community.
