Storytelling is our way of expressing the soul of our community to one another. Stories expose our beliefs, emotions and vulnerabilities that can connect with people in ways that facts and statistics can’t. Stories foster empathy, remind us of what it means to be human, and challenge us to be the change we seek.

Join us for our second annual Storytelling Inspire Speakers Series event to hear stories from citizens who are working to create sustainable, vibrant, healthy, and just places for us all to live, work, learn, and play. This Moth-style and TED-like event will dare us to dream big about what is possible for our communities, projects, and places.
